In this study, the geographical and local topographic factors have been incorporated into geo-statistical approaches and also various models have been developed relating hail events to site position to assess of a hail hazard at high resolution in the Republic of Moldova. An assessment of the average number of hail days, frequency of a year with hail incidences and peak values by natural zones of Moldova has been derived based on the hail incidence records for 68-years (1949-2015). Hail Sensitive Areas (HSAs) at high resolution are delineated to design resilience for coping with this climate hazards at community level. The research findings ensure more effective use of the hail data and better understanding climatology of hail risk across the Republic of Moldova, and, therefore, facilitate decision making and determination of hail insurance rates throughout the country.
