How our response to natural disasters can be improved and lessons learnt which benefit vulnerable communities worldwide in the long-term
Geographers define a natural hazard as a potentially dangerous physical event occurring close to a population (who are said to be at risk). A Disaster is the realisation of this hazard risk. Natural disasters are thus a function of both the magnitude of a physical event and the state of preparedness / coping capacity of the society that has been exposed to risk.
In this 21st Century Challenge, we take a look at how our response to natural disasters can be improved and ensure lessons are learnt which benefit vulnerable communities worldwide in the long-term.
