This report shows the results of a nationwide risk assessment aimed to develop a comprehensive disaster risk profile for Rwanda. It covers five major natural hazards prevailing in Rwanda namely; droughts, floods, landslides, earthquakes and windstorms. The elements at risk considered in the assessment are: population, agriculture, health, education, housing (building) and transportation (roads). The risk profile is analyzed and presented at national and local scale i.e. district level.
The OpenQuake engine was used to run the national earthquake hazard assessment, learn more here.
