  • Deutsch

  • Italiano


The project is financed by the International Organization of Migration (IOM) and aims at providing a multi-hazard risk assessment of the country of Burundi at national and provincial scale, also considering the effect of climate change. Main hazards considered include:
-    earthquakes,
-    torrential rains,
-    pluvial and fluvial floods and
-    landslides.
The project will be carried out by an international consortium led by a Spanish company (IDOM).  
EURAC will be responsible for
-    harmonization of geospatial exposure data (support to coordinator)
-    landslides hazard and risk assessment,
-    social vulnerability assessment and multi-hazard risk analysis
The strategic objective is to consolidate expertise and methodologies for:
-    large scale landslide risk
-    multi-hazard risk assessment
-    social vulnerability analysis

The activities of the Burundi project have resulted in a new multi-hazard risk analysis being carried out at national and local scale. To bridge the gap in data availability, local authoritative sources have been integrated by international and global resources. A uptodate exposure model has been implemented, and complemented by an innovative socio-economical analysis. Furthermore, a data-driven statistical susceptibility model for shallow landslides has been derived at national scale.

Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol) with researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields who come from all over the globe. Together, through scientific knowledge and research, they share the goal of shaping the future.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
