A new regionally consistent exposure database for Central Asia: population and residential buildings
Abstract. Central Asia is highly exposed to a broad range of hazardous phenomena including earthquakes, floods and landslides, which have cause substantial damages in the past. However, disaster risk reduction strategies are still under development in the area. We provide a regional-scale exposure database for population and residential buildings based on existing information from previous exposure development efforts at regional and national scale. Such datasets are complemented with country-based data (e.g. building census, national statistics) collected by national representatives in each Central Asia country (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan). We also develop population and residential buildings exposure layers for the year 2080, which support the definition of disaster risk reduction strategies in the region.
