Natural Hazards

A natural hazard is a threat of a naturally occurring event that will have a negative effect on people, their assets or the environment.

Natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, liquefaction, landslides, coastal erosion, floods, droughts, cyclones and tsunami can often result in a disaster to communities. Climate change can also exacerbate natural hazards, so their effects can vary with time.
