Dear Colleague,

The theme of this special issue is "Disaster Risk Assessment, Modelling and Management". Disaster risk assessment is to analyze and evaluate the hazard factors and vulnerabilities of the exposed community located in a hazard zone that may bring potential threats or harm to human life, property, livelihood and the environment, and then determine the nature, scope and loss of the disaster. Risk assessment is a process of quantifying the probability damage. PTND is now accepting manuscripts for a special issue with innovative ideas, applications, and management strategies for natural disaster risk assessment, modelling, and management. At the same time, attach great importance to the application of geographic information system and remote sensing technology.(Electronic call for papers)

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30th March 2023.
