The Oasis Project

The Oasis Platform for Climate and Catastrophe Risk Assessment in Asia Project

The Oasis Platform for Climate and Catastrophe Risk Assessment in Asia Project, or the Oasis Project, aims to co-develop new and open catastrophe risk models for flood in the Philippines and cyclone in Bangladesh.

A key goal of the project is linking in-country scientific expertise and data with international expertise in catastrophe risk modelling to build capabilities of the local insurance industry, government, and academe for catastrophe and climate risk modelling and analysis. This will develop the ability in each country to maintain and develop new risk models using open-source technology and to take ownership of their risk understanding in the long term.

Project implementing partners for the Philippines are Oasis Loss Modelling Framework (Oasis LMF), Nat Re, the University of the Philippines (UP) Geodetic Engineering Department, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), KatRisk, Willis Tower Watson, and Tysers.

The project is fully funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German federal government.
