These broader considerations about community involvement and designing a better world are part of the broader context in which we reduce disasters and are worth keeping in mind.
However, the major output of this module is future developed disaster risk profiles for the two most likely hazards that will directly affect your property and the local area and to use them to guide your design decisions.
We don’t need to do any maths here, but the equation illustrated here can help us understand the risk of potential disasters. Disaster risk is calculated by considering a hazard, multiplying it by exposure and vulnerability, and then dividing by our capacity to cope.
Incorporating fire protection into your zone specific designs is a great approach to make your home safer against fire.
How can productive systems such as aquaponics or vegetable gardens also act as barriers against fire?
How can you use microclimates, sector analysis, or even hügelkultur to better prepare your site for other disasters as well?
