Reducing natural hazard risk is high on the global political agenda. In response, more and more risk datasets, methods, and models are being developed and applied together with stakeholders in the decision-making process. At the same time, climate change, globalisation, urbanisation, and increased interconnectedness between ecological, physical, human, and technological systems pose major challenges to disaster risk reduction in a globally interconnected world. COVID-19 has clearly shown that single-hazard approaches to disaster risk management can leave countries unprepared. This calls for novel scientific approaches and new types of data, including loss data, to integrate the study of multiple natural and human processes. The integration of socioeconomic loss databases in risk assessments allows for effective use for both science and policy. This session is a merger between the following sessions:
Global and continental scale risk assessment for natural hazards: methods, practice and open loss and risk assessment
In this sub-session we: (1) showcase current state-of-the-art in global and continental natural hazard risk science, assessment, and application; (2) foster exchange of knowledge and good practice between scientists and practitioners; and (3) collaboratively identify future research avenues. We examine all aspects of natural hazard risk assessment at the continental to global scale, including contributions focusing on single hazards, multiple hazards, or a combination or cascade of hazards. It includes contributions focusing on globally applicable methods, such as using globally available datasets to force more local models or inform more local risk assessment.
Interplay between natural hazards and vulnerable societies in the context of global change
This sub-session aims to: (1) gather research, empirical studies, and observation data that are useful for understanding and assessing risk to inform resilience building strategies in the context of global change, (2) identify persistent gaps, and (3) propose potential ways forward. The session welcomes contributions on the following topics, among others: What can we learn from comparative studies of past successes and failures? Why do we still see increasing impacts of natural hazards despite major progress in understanding their drivers and constant innovation in methods? Which approaches are needed to assess and manage multi-hazard and multi-risk?
