Extensive risk


This is the extensive danger associated with the frequent or persistent exposure of dispersed populations to low or moderate-intensity hazard circumstances, sometimes of a relatively localized origin, which can result in devastating cumulative disaster repercussions.

Extensive risk is primarily associated with rural areas and urban fringes, where residents are exposed to and vulnerable to periodic localized floods, landslides, storms, or drought. Poverty, urbanization, and environmental deterioration are all linked to high risk.
