Abstract:
According to the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) approach, this paper aims to return a method to assess disaster risk from adverse natural events as a function of hazard, exposure, and vulnerability. Focusing on the Italian agri-food sector as a case-study and considering municipality-level data, a multi-hazard and multi-exposure approach is followed for risk assessment. In particular, both synthetic indicators and cluster analysis are performed. With regard to the implementation of DRR measures, this work suggests to devote proper attention to high-vulnerability municipalities.
