magnitude. To represent current building stock in the target region, building surveys are conducted to develop a realistic seismic risk model. Moreover, seismic fragility models for typical masonry buildings in Malawi are developed based on pushover analysis of finite-element models. Finally, all improved model components are integrated to carry out the seismic hazard and risk assessments in Central-Southern Malawi. The new seismic hazard and risk assessments will inform the baseline seismic risk more accurately.
