Mini-Symposium 25:

Hazards Risk Assessment and Management

Abstract:

Hazards will continue to adversely affect our societies without preparedness. The determination of a community's preparedness requires assessment of potential risk and the management of that risk. To better prepare for natural and human-induced catastrophic events, many governmental organizations, associations and research institutions have used scenario-based exercises to assess vulnerability and test response capabilities. Assessment findings are used for informed decision making and management.

This session aims to address the assessment of risk and potential for damage to a community and/or structure from the impact of natural or human-induced hazards. In addition, the session will address the impact of scenario-based assessment techniques.
