Now Available! FEMA P-2090/ NIST SP-1254 Special Report

The joint FEMA P-2090/ NIST SP-1254 Special Report, Recommended Options for Improving the Built Environment for Post-Earthquake Reoccupancy and Functional Recovery Time, is available for immediate download.  This report was requested by Congress as part of the most recent National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) reauthorization, and is the work of a Committee of Experts including more than 30 individuals from federal agencies, nongovernmental organizations, private sector entities, disaster management professional associations, engineering professional associations, and professional construction and homebuilding industry associations.

The report provides options in the form of recommendations, tasks, and alternatives for improving the built environment to increase resilience and reduce the impacts of future natural hazard events.  It includes one overarching recommendation and six additional supporting recommendations. Across all recommendations, there are 17 tasks identifying necessary actions and nine possible alternative actions needed for implementation.  Finally, the report includes an assessment of the recommendations and describes a path forward for implementation.

for
World-Bank ATC-148 Project, Building Technical Capacity in Central Asia 
to Design Risk-Informed Public Infrastructure Investments at Scale

One of the objectives of the ongoing ATC-148 project is to strengthen the technical capacity of local stakeholders on seismic risk analysis and design of risk reduction strategies.  Accordingly, the project team is conducting training sessions in Uzbekistan and the Kyrgyz Republic in 2019. The following resources are compiled here for training attendees. All listed resources are available for free download.
