Natural Hazards: Introduction

A hazard is defined as something that causes a potential risk to human life or to property. These bring about disasters which in turn cause structural damage, death, and ultimately, interruption of human activities.

With this, natural hazards are naturally occurring physical phenomena caused either by rapid or slow onset events, which pose a risk to human life and property.

This ​A-level ​Natural Hazards module introduces natural hazards to your students, explaining:

  • What are natural hazards?
  • What are their main characteristics?
  • What are the different ways of categorizing natural hazards?
  • What are the types of natural hazards according to nature?
  • How are vulnerability, capacity to cope, and disaster risk related to each other?
  • What is the current trend when it comes to hazards and disasters around the world?
  • How can disasters be managed and prepared for?
