Natural hazards such as floods, debris flows, avalanches, rockslides and landslides have, in recent decades, caused greater damage than before. This has several reasons: the steady growth of assets and properties at risk, the rising vulnerability of infrastructures, and the extreme meteorological events. It must be expected that such extreme events will occur even more frequently in future as a result of climate change. To protect human lives and properties, it is essential to take action in the realms of spatial planning, technical facilities and organisational structures.
