Disaster risk


This refers to the potential disaster losses in terms of lives, livelihoods, health, properties, and services that could occur to a specific community or society at some point in the future. The concept of disasters as the result of continually existing risk conditions is reflected in the term of disaster risk. Different sorts of possible losses are included in disaster risk, which can be difficult to measure. Disaster risks can be quantified and mapped, at least in basic terms, with information on the prevalent hazards and patterns of population and socio-economic development.
