  • 26. Three ‘approaches’ to why people live in hazardous areas: Fatalistic Approach
  • 27. Three ‘approaches’ to why people live in hazardous areas: Fatalistic Approach Acceptance Approach
  • 28. Three ‘approaches’ to why people live in hazardous areas: Fatalistic Approach Acceptance Approach Adaption Approach
  • 29. If it happens, it happens, and it’s all part of living in this area
  • 30. If it happens, it happens, and it’s all part of living in this area Fatalistic Approach
  • 31. Fatalistic Approach
  • 32. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach
  • 33. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’.
  • 34. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’. Losses are accepted as inevitable.
  • 35. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’. Losses are accepted as inevitable. People may remain where they are.
