The Oasis Platform for Climate Risk Assessment in Asia Project (IKI)

This project was to co-develop new and open catastrophe risk models for flood in the Philippines and cyclone in Bangladesh while analysing the impacts of climate change. The models were developed on the open-source Oasis Loss Modelling platform. 

This project was supported by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), bringing together a multinational public-private partnership to build solutions to understand and manage the increasing costs of disasters. 

A key goal of the project was to link in-country scientific expertise and data with international expertise in catastrophe risk modelling to build capacity in the country for catastrophe and climate risk modelling and analysis. This develops the ability in each country to maintain and develop new risk models using open-source technology and to take ownership of their risk understanding in the long term.

The models and concepts developed during this project are presented on the Oasis LMF YouTube channel. The details of what is covered in each video are included in the descriptions.
