Changing climate, rapid urbanization, ongoing violence and conflicts in many parts of the world, changing demographics, technological innovations, inequality and many other known and emerging changes with their inherent uncertainties have created an unprecedented context for disaster impact. Apart from sudden large-scale disasters, the accumulation of impacts from frequent events (health, safety, security, environmental crises) have a quiet but massive effect on society and sustainable development. Investing in understanding disaster risk is therefore more important than ever if we want to understand its complexity and efficiently manage the resources required for managing disaster risk and designing interventions. The approach to assessing and managing risks of different hazards in different sectors often occurs in isolation. Multi-hazard assessment help bring these actors together to study the relative risks of each type of hazard and find common ground for taking effective measures and using resources efficiently through an “all-hazards” approach.
