· Carry out research and studies in key areas of earthquake risk mitigation and management to promote a better understanding of the risks caused by earthquakes,
· Contribute to the elaboration and development of disaster risk mitigation policy by taking actions such as assisting Governments in developing disaster risk and impact mitigation policies, including risk reduction, preparation, post-disaster needs assessment, damage studies, post-disaster reconnaissance missions, assessment of physical, functional and economic losses, social consequences of disasters, planning of reconstruction of disaster-affected areas and protection measures,
· Promote education and training at different levels for the transfer of knowledge in the field of earthquake risk management,
· Contribute to the development, implementation and improvement of technical regulations, standards and guidelines in the field of disaster risk reduction,
· Carry out research and development of advanced methods, techniques and tools for earthquake loss assessment, rapid response, decision support,
· Promote the culture of risk prevention, community awareness through organization of workshops, seminars, trainings, debates and other events as well as publications,
· Provide services: consultation, expert studies, technical advice, etc,
