The G-EVER Consortium among the Asia-Pacific geohazard research institutes was established in 2012. The first Workshop of Asia-Pacific Region Global Earthquake and Volcanic Eruption Risk Management (G-EVER1) was held in Tsukuba, Japan in Feb. 2012. The workshop focused on strategies formulation to reduce disaster risks worldwide caused by earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. The G-EVER1 accord was approved by the participants during the workshop and 10 recommendations were made that focus on; enhancing collaboration, sharing of resources, and making information about the risks of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions freely available and understandable. The G-EVER Promotion Team in GSJ was started in Nov. 2012 to enhance the G-EVER activieis. This G-EVER Hub website was setup to promote the exchange of information and knowledge about volcanic and seismic hazards among the Asia-Pacific countries. Establishing or endorsing data interchange and analytical methods standards for geohazard institutes of the world are important to promote data sharing and comparative analyses. Several G-EVER Working Groups and projects were proposed such as risk assessment of large-scale earthquake WG, risk assessment of large-scale volcanic eruption WG, volcanic hazard assessment WG and the Asia-Pacific region earthquake and volcanic hazard mapping project. The volcanic hazard assessment assist system is implemented with user-friendly interface, making the risk assessment system easily usable and accessible online. The Asia-Pacific region earthquake and volcanic hazard mapping project aims to make a sophisticated online hazard information system that provides past and recent earthquake and volcanic hazards information, risk assessment tools for earthquake and volcanic eruption hazards and links to global earthquake and volcanic eruption databases. The hazard mapping project plans to create the system with the cooperation of Asia-Pacific countries.
