URL :  Natural and Financial Disaster Mitigation
Author : J. Stein - S. Stein
Detail : Published: 2012

A crucial aspect of this assessment is that the benefits must be estimated using models with significant uncertainties to infer the probabilities of future events, as we illustrate using a simple model for tsunami mitigation. Improving hazard models is important because overestimating or underestimating the hazard leads to too much or too little mitigation. Thus although one type of disaster has natural causes and the other has economic causes, comparison provides insights for improving hazard assessment and mitigation policies.
