Abstract

This document considers the disaster risk associated with extreme geohazards and addresses the challenges of disaster risk reduction for these low-probability, high- impact events. The paper was supported by the European Science Foundation (ESF). It was initiated at the high-level ESF-COST conference on ‘Understanding Extreme Geohazards: The Science of the Disaster Risk Management Cycle’ held in November 2011 in Spain (see www.geohazcop.org/workshops/Sant_Feliu_2011). The Declaration on Extreme Geohazards and the Reduction of Disaster Risks, which resulted from this conference is reproduced in Appendix C
