Abstract/Summary

Losses from natural hazards are, in principle, avoidable i.e. through enforcement of total bans on occupying hazardous areas. However, this does not come without cost; for example loss of revenue, restrictions on individual choice and loss of livelihood. Evaluating this trade-off is in essence what decision-makers, whether they are insurers, government departments, property developers etc, have to be able to achieve.
