Updated versions of SBTool 2024 rev.

We have just completed an updated version of SBTool that fixes some bugs and also provides bilingual English/French versions of core worksheets and also increases the range of descriptive variables. This is an on-going process and further stages of completed files will be posted in some weeks.

Tool to assess urban and building damage - Update

We recently provided news of a draft Excel tool to provide crude assessments of damage to urban areas and buildings caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

We have made the tool more user friendly and, equally important, we have improved the sections that deal with the impact of natural phenomena, including earthquakes and climate change impacts.

The tool can be operated in English, Ukrainian, Polish, French, Spanish, German and Turkish.

We have now also prepared an explanatory file.
