Specific topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to,

  • new methods and techniques for (multi-)hazard scenarios, exposure, and vulnerability modelling;
  • new methods and techniques for impact assessment, cascading effects, and loss estimation;
  • design, development, and implementation of tools for the analysis of multi-risks;
  • analysis and development towards practical applications for stakeholders and decision makers.

The special issue asks for contributions that address countries of the Andes region. Submissions for all manuscript types such as research articles, review articles, and brief communications are welcome. The deadline for paper submission is 31 July 2022.
