The Oasis Loss Modeling framework provides an ‘open source tool’ for risk assessment calculations, which can accommodate most data and models thus enabling the direct comparison of modelled results, leading to increased accuracy in data and models used for risk assessment. The framework already includes a variety of models with a good global coverage.
In this framework, the Future Danube has a module based operation where each module has a responsible developer in the consortium and the modules can be used separately too. Modules are linked in such a way that output from one module can be used standalone (such as heavy precipitation from the weather module) or feed into subsequent modules, e.g. into the hydrology module, to simulate flooding, and from there into the risk module, to simulate losses. This way, stakeholders can estimate risks from multi-perils, but also feed output from the modules into their own simulation tools, if needed, or vice versa. The graphical interface will be a user-friendly web GIS interface allowing for data analysis and extraction. The application of Oasis Loss Modeling the framework is tailor made and based on consultations with the stakeholder in need of forecasts and adaptation measures.
