A TOOL OF DECISION SUPPORT FOR THE NATURAL RISK MANAGEMENT

Nadia Abdat, Zaia Alimazighi

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a space balanced scorecard for the seismic risk management. Indeed, to install an effective policy of prevention against the natural risk, the phenomenon should be controlled. This can be carried out only after a good knowledge of this last. From where, the need for having a large volume of information coming from various sources. The Geographical information systems (GIS) are largely used for the decision support. However, they give a rather static vision whereas the management of an environmental process in general and natural risk in particular requires tools based on dynamic models. In addition, the scorecards are often used to build decision support systems. In this paper, we propose a balanced scorecard for the management of a seismic risk which is established on the basis of spatial indicators.
