Project Overview

Noting that Guy Carpenter (GC) and its clients have considerable exposure to coastal hazards in Southeast Asia, GC, in conjunction with EOS, sought to produce a map that used historic and prehistoric events to highlight the vulnerability of Southeast Asia’s coast to tropical cyclones, tsunamis and other coastal hazards. The map (poster) was produced by using datasets from EOS and collaborators for the purpose of education and information for GC clients.
