GFDRR (Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery; http://www.gfdrr.org) published a report titled, “REVIEW OF OPEN SOURCE AND OPEN ACCESS SOFTWARE PACKAGES AVAILABLE TO QUANTIFY RISK FROM NATURAL HAZARDS”.
The report gives Ergo (mHARP) a very good review and says:

“mHARP will give this fantastic software an additional use. It should be integrated with Deltares or other risk software, given the common structure. It has already been integrated in HAZturk and SYNER-G. A combination with EQRM for probabilistic modelling would be useful. An InaSAFE-style command system could simplify the software even further for the most basic users, but it is currently fairly user-friendly.”
