Natural hazards: towards an integrated approach

How do people make decisions in the context of climate change risks and environmental conflicts? How can we measure their impacts? A clearer system of classification of disasters, an improvement of loss accounting mechanisms and a refocusing on extensive forms of risk can offer new possibilities for developing a more coherent path towards disaster risk reduction and sustainable development
