As recent policy documents have highlighted, environmental degradation is a leading cause of increased disaster risk (IPCC, 2012; UNISDR, 2011). The World Risk Report (2012) points out that “Environmental degradation is a significant factor that reduces the adaptive capacity of societies to deal with disaster risk in many countries,” which means, in other words, that “not all storms and other natural hazards need to turn into disasters.”
