Abstract: Hazards are natural, disasters are not. In the field of risk management, we consider that while events such as earthquakes are natural, the resulting disasters are not—they are the result of human decision in terms of the urban systems we build, where we build them and how we build them. Each of these factors into the level of risk associated with a natural event.
