    Abstract

    Geological hazards significantly affect communities in the tectonically active parts of the SW Pacific and SE Asian region. Geological hazards include intensive hazards, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, and landslides, and slow-onset hazards, such as subsidence, coastal erosion, and coastal progradation. A regional data base should be established for the collection, use, and dissemination of data on geological hazards, a comprehensive set of geological-hazard maps should be prepared, and a training scheme in geological-hazard assessment, mitigation, and preparedness should be established. -from Authors
