However, the institution that will own it was not defined until the beginning of 2022. In the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Plan-IRAP prepared by AFAD in 2022, all relevant institutions and organizations, their duties and processes will be determined under the coordination of our Metropolitan Municipality. We are preparing our city for a possible earthquake or natural disaster,” he said.

Cbs Data Will Be Generated

Data will be collected for risk analysis by performing a 1st stage structure review. In a sense, the identity information of the building is extracted and the purpose of use of the building, reinforced concrete, number of floors, year of construction and peer density etc. information will be obtained. Studies on the provision of population data will also be carried out and processed as GIS data. Afterwards, risk analyzes will be completed and an Earthquake Master Plan will be created. As “Building stock determination studies” with IRAP are planned under the responsibility of the district municipality, we will carry out these studies primarily with the teams we will form from the district municipalities and the metropolitan municipality as support. At the same time, it should be completed simultaneously by emphasizing the issues determined in the IRAP that infrastructure institutions should do for their own facilities.”
