Compound hazards

Submission status
Open
Submission deadline

In recent years the concept of compound hazards, or multirisks, has emerged to better comprehend the effects of multiple hazards occurring simultaneously or one after another, dynamically coupled or independent, in close association. Extreme climatic events like droughts or cyclones, volcanic eruptions, landslides and other natural hazards, and even public health crises such as pandemics, threaten human lives, societies, and the natural and built environments. Often compound hazards include couplings between natural and anthropogenic processes, for example housing developments on steep slopes exacerbating landslide hazard, or informal refuse dumping contributing to urban flood risk.

The Collection will welcome the latest research on compound hazards, their origin, how they are connected and their short and long term impacts in a rapidly changing world.
