Figure

This overhead simply shows the relationship of disasters, hazards, and vulnerability. Disaster is the product of hazard and vulnerability. If either hazard or vulnerability are reduced, the resulting disaster will also be reduced accordingly.

hazard x vulnerability = disaster

HAZARD x vulnerability = DISASTER

hazard x VULNERABILITY = DISASTER

HAZARD x VULNERABILITY = DISASTER
