    29. 29. Sukanto Debnath If it happens, it happens, and it’s all part of living in this area
    30. 30. Sukanto Debnath If it happens, it happens, and it’s all part of living in this area Fatalistic Approach
    31. 31. Fatalistic Approach
    32. 32. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach
    33. 33. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’.
    34. 34. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’. Populations take direct action that is concerned with safety.
    35. 35. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’. Populations take direct action that is concerned with safety. Losses are accepted as inevitable.
    36. 36. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’. Populations take direct action that is concerned with safety. Losses are accepted as inevitable. People may remain where they are.
    37. 37. Fatalistic Approach Russian roulette - an optimistic approach Some communities would go as far as to say that hazards are ‘God’s will’. Populations take direct action that is concerned with safety. Losses are accepted as inevitable. People may remain where they are. Lack of alternatives - due economic reasons.

    39. 39. DavidDennis Hazards are a part of everyday life which we try and live with. We know hazards happen, but continue to live in this area because it has many advantages.
    40. 40. DavidDennis Hazards are a part of everyday life which we try and live with. We know hazards happen, but continue to live in this area because it has many advantages. Acceptance Approach
    41. 41. Acceptance Approach
    42. 42. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater.
    43. 43. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits.
    44. 44. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism.
    45. 45. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism. Energy generation.
    46. 46. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism. Energy generation. Opportunity for intensive agriculture.
    47. 47. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism. Energy generation. Opportunity for intensive agriculture. Mineral extraction.

    49. 49. renfield Events can be prevented and warnings given. The area has been made safer with modern technology so even if a disaster occurs few people will be affected
    50. 50. renfield Events can be prevented and warnings given. The area has been made safer with modern technology so even if a disaster occurs few people will be affected Adaption Approach
    51. 51. Adaption Approach
    52. 52. Adaption Approach People see that they can prepare for, and therefore survive, the hazard.
    53. 53. Adaption Approach People see that they can prepare for, and therefore survive, the hazard. Prediction.
    54. 54. Adaption Approach People see that they can prepare for, and therefore survive, the hazard. Prediction. Prevention.
