The Launch of the Journal of Catastrophe Risk and Resilience

For those interested in promoting research into catastrophe risk you will be interested in the launch of:

The Journal of Catastrophe Risk and Resilience (JCRR) https://journalofcrr.com/about-us/

The JCRR is a diamond open-access interdisciplinary research journal with a broad remit encompassing natural hazards, catastrophe risk, and the societal and institutional response to their management. It publishes original research, reviews, and commentary from scientists, researchers, practitioners, and decision makers across academia and the private sector on a variety of topics including: the monitoring and modelling of hazards; exposure and vulnerability; catastrophe risk management and mitigation and adaptation strategy designed by governments, NGOs, and businesses.

The Journal aims to:

  • Provide a forum for experts in both academia and industry to publish the methods and results of their research.
  • Remove some of the barriers to publication erected by traditional academic journals.
  • Foster a spirit of collaboration and methodological openness amongst industrial practitioners.
  • Make relevant academics visible to an industry which can consume and utilise their research.
  • Generate impact through the definition and maintenance of best practice.
  • Command a dedicated readership amongst catastrophe researchers, model vendors, and academic geoscientists.
  • Cultivate new avenues of interdisciplinary collaboration in academia to strengthen the link-fundamental to catastrophe risk research – between physics-and economics-adjacent fields.

Oasis and the IDF Start Developing a Global, Open Access Exposure Model

Oasis, in conjunction with the Insurance Development Forum (IDF) is developing a new open access global exposure model.

The aim is to develop an insurance-grade exposure dataset available as a service for use by all sectors. It will be available in an open, online data portal, backed by a sustainable business model for curation and continuous development. 

Top data layers will be free for public good, while future versions will create a marketplace for more granular data in which providers can be rewarded for their investment. It will need to be multi-line to include property initially, and infrastructure and agriculture in time.

Let us know if you would like to be involved.
