This chapter uses illustrative examples to discuss critically some of the tools available for hazard identification at different space and time scales. This chapter complements Chapter 16, which describes data sources used for policy analysis by discussing how data, identification tools and presentation of data can be used directly for disaster risk reduction. The process of identifying hazards is an important part of disaster risk reduction processes, contributing to understanding the scales and specific places of the risks faced, assisting in characterising disaster risk reduction strategies.
