Intensive risk


This refers to the risk of huge groups of people and economic activities being exposed to extreme hazard events, which can result in potentially catastrophic disasters with substantial death and asset loss.

Intensive risk is primarily associated with large cities or highly inhabited areas that are not only vulnerable to severe disasters such as significant earthquakes, active volcanoes, massive floods, tsunamis, or major storms but are also exposed to them. “Extensive risk” is another term for “high risk.”
