  26. 26. Three ‘approaches’ to why people live in hazardous areas: Fatalistic Approach
  27. 27. Three ‘approaches’ to why people live in hazardous areas: Fatalistic Approach Acceptance Approach
  28. 28. Three ‘approaches’ to why people live in hazardous areas: Fatalistic Approach Acceptance Approach Adaption Approach
  29. 29. If it happens, it happens, and it’s all part of living in this area
  30. 30. 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’. Losses are accepted as inevitable.
  35. 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.
  36. 36. 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. Lack of alternatives.
  37. 37. 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.
  38. 38. 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
  39. 39. Acceptance Approach
  40. 40. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater.
  41. 41. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits.
  42. 42. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism.
  43. 43. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism. Energy generation.
  44. 44. Acceptance Approach Accept the risks that the hazards present because the advantages are greater. Costs versus benefits. Tourism. Energy generation. Opportunity for intensive agriculture.
  45. 45. 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.
  46. 46. 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
  47. 47. 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
  48. 48. Adaption Approach
  49. 49. Adaption Approach People see that they can prepare for, and therefore survive, the hazard.
  50. 50. Adaption Approach People see that they can prepare for, and therefore survive, the hazard. Prediction.
  51. 51. Adaption Approach People see that they can prepare for, and therefore survive, the hazard. Prediction. Prevention.
