Natural Hazards

Natural hazards, encompassing earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and droughts, are formidable forces that shape the Earth's dynamic landscape and challenge human resilience. Earthquakes result from tectonic plate movements, causing ground tremors with devastating consequences. Conversely, droughts, prolonged periods of water scarcity, threaten ecosystems and agricultural productivity. The impact of these hazards extends beyond physical destruction, affecting communities socially and economically, underscoring the imperative for proactive mitigation and adaptive strategies in the face of nature's unpredictable might.
