Hazards and Sustainability

A section of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).

Section Information

The purpose of the section is to study and manage hazards and reduce the damage they create. Hazards can be natural, anthropogenic, or a combination of the two. Natural hazards can be classified into several broad categories: geological, hydrological, and meteorological hazards. Anthropogenic hazards mainly include fires and acid rain.

Disasters are taking a heavy toll and affecting individuals, communities, and countries worldwide. In response to hazards, we must carry out disaster risk management to reduce disaster risks and enhance resilience.


  1. Natural hazards and sustainability:
  • Geological hazards: earthquakes, landslides, debris flow, flash floods, volcanoes, collapses, rock falls, etc.
  • Hydrological hazards: floods, droughts, marine disasters, tsunamis, storm surges, etc.
  • Meteorological hazards: severe weather, storms, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, sandstorms, climate change, global warming, greenhouse gas emissions, lightning, heavy fog, haze, hailstones, etc.
  1. Anthropogenic hazards and sustainability: fires, acid rain, etc.
  2. Disaster risk management and sustainability: resilience, reconstruction, emergency management, safety engineering, natural hazard assessment, disaster mitigation, sustainable risk management, disaster risk reduction, post-disaster recovery/restoration, disaster resilient communities, etc.
