Socio-Natural Hazard


This is the increased occurrence of certain geophysical and hydrometeorological hazard events, such as landslides, flooding, ground subsidence, and drought, caused by natural hazards interacting with overexploited or degraded land and environmental resources.

This term refers to situations in which human activity increases the likelihood of certain risks over and above their inherent probability. Evidence suggests that the number of disasters caused by such dangers is increasing. Through effective land and environmental resource management, socio-natural dangers can be controlled and avoided.
