Increasing Earthquake Resilience​

Earthquakes affect almost 1/3 of the world’s population and are more destructive than all other natural disasters combined.

Grillo is a social enterprise helping people living in vulnerable areas by providing early-warnings and sharing technology and data.

Case Study: Mexico

Following the devastating 2017 earthquakes in Mexico, USAID and Roddenberry Foundation supported Grillo in the creation of a new Mexican earthquake early-warning system with 50 sensors.

The system has to date provided over 1000 alerts and is being used by 12,000+ users via phone app, home device and school loudspeakers.​
