This group has developed numerous natural hazards and risk modelling studies for several countries in the Latin America and Caribbean Region, Europe, South-East Asia, and Indian Ocean. The corresponding country's governments have used their results for risk reduction, land use planning, financial risk transfer, insurance and reinsurance, and for integrated disaster risk management. 

The studies have been developed for different resolution levels: regional, national, and city levels.The developments performed on vulnerability and risk evaluation and on the holistic risk approach, as well as on the development and use of risk indicators and urban risk scenarios, are well known in the scientific community due to the numerous articles published by the members of the group.
