Diverse natural hazards – high human and economic losses


Stäubli, Anina; Nussbaumer, Samuel U; Allen, Simon; Huggel, Christian; Wymann von Dach, Susanne (2017). Diverse natural hazards – high human and economic losses. In: Wymann von Dach, Susanne; Bachmann, Felicitas; Alcántara-Ayala, Irasema; Fuchs, Sven; Keiler, Margreth; Mishra, Arabinda; Sötz, Elisabeth. Safer lives and livelihoods in mountains: making the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction work for sustainable mountain development. Bern: Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), University of Bern, 14-19.

Abstract

Mountain systems are very diverse and so is the pattern of natural hazards. Worldwide disaster databases show that associated human and economic losses are significant but vary greatly between and within mountain regions. Continued changes in climate, land use and socio-economic conditions are likely to lead to vastly altered mountain landscapes in the future, with associated implications for hazards and impacts on sustainable mountain development.
