 It is within this context that the seismic hazard component SARA established several key goals for improving the state of regional seismic hazard assessment in South America. These include the harmonisation of critical earthquake data sets (including both historical and instrumental earthquake catalogues, seismically active faults, and local and national databases strong motion recordings),​ the development of data common standards for representation,​ and the development open tools for both data collection and interpretation. Whilst the technical developments of the SARA hazard component are both necessary and valuable, it is the active engagement of scientists and engineers from within the region that may best ensure that the project’s outcomes will continue to impact upon seismic hazard assessment after completion of the project. The SARA hazard component was organised into seven research areas, with scientific experts from different institutions across the region participating,​ and often leading, the activities in the different topics, in response to a call for proposals published by GEM in 2013. The hazard work package was organised into 7 research topics. Below we provide the definition of each topic: It is within this context that the seismic hazard component SARA established several key goals for improving the state of regional seismic hazard assessment in South America.
