Abstract: This report provides an overview of the existing methods of tsunami risk assessment. The analyses focus on the process of risk assessment, its basic steps and output. Therefore, the specific components of risk, such as hazard, consequence or vulnerability are not discussed in detail. The reviewed studies are classified according to the country of origin or their place of the application. Since literature on tsunami risk assessment is limited, other risk assessment methods applied for floods and landslides are briefly discussed and studied their commonalities with tsunami risk. In conclusion, the report suggests a possible strategy for addressing the tsunami risk in the TRANSFER project. For this purpose, a general framework for tsunami risk assessment has been prepared.
