Volcán de Fuego, Guatemala, Eruption : Global Rapid Post Disaster Damage Estimation (Grade) Report (English)

Volcán de Fuego is considered to be one of Central America's most active volcanoes. It is situated eighteen kilometers south west from Central America's former colonial capital and present main tourist destination of Antigua Guatemala (a UNESCO world heritage site) and forty kilometers south west of Guatemala city. It is the most active of Guatemala's thirty-four volcanoes. Following the Volcán de Fuego eruption on June 3, 2018, a rapid post-disaster damage assessment, following the GRADE methodology was undertaken. The objective was to estimate the economic damages caused by the event and understand the spatial distribution of damage to support the process of developing a road-map for reconstruction and recovery. The analysis provides an independent view of the actual degree of damage across the affected area. The key economic impact findings and risk implications are summarized in this report.
