From Volcanic Hazard to Risk Assessment


We aim to gather experts in the field of volcanic hazard, exposure, vulnerability and risk assessment in order to evaluate the state of the art of risk assessment in volcanology, investigate current gaps and identify research priorities.


Specific objectives:


• identify the benefits of risk assessment for decision makers, current gaps and potential improvements;

• identify key vulnerability aspects that need to be assessed for a comprehensive and efficient risk assessment;

• identify that key vulnerability aspects that need to be considered in a multi-hazard context;

• identify the optimum hazard and vulnerability products necessary for risk assessment at different scales.
