NATIONAL CENTRE FOR SEISMIC RISK REDUCTION
The aim of the present paper is to describe the seismic risk reduction efforts in Romania. Seismic risk reduction in Romania can be achieved through several types of actions from which the major ones are (i) seismic vulnerability assessment, (ii) seismic rehabilitation of existing buildings and modern earthquake-resistant design for new buildings, (iii) increased number of recorded strong ground motions in conjunction with accurate soil characterization, and (iv) education and information of citizens. In this respect, a great support for Romanian efforts for seismic risk reduction came through a Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) project in Romania, implemented by the National Centre for Seismic Risk Reduction (NCSRR) in the period of 2002-2008. The Project and NCSRR’s activities are described in the present paper.
