Geological knowledge is crucial for understanding natural risks, whether they be linked to telluric phenomena, such as volcanic and seismic activity, or hydrological and climate-related phenomena, such as landslides. In issue 23, Géosciences reviews the innovative solutions provided by geology to assess and prevent such risks.

Whether it concerns earthquakes, ground movements, shrinking and swelling of clay soil, coastal erosion or other issues, geological knowledge is crucial for understanding natural risks.

Issue 23 of the Géosciences journal, which focuses on the United Nations Sendai Framework, examines the contribution of geosciences to understanding these risks. It also looks at the best ways to prevent such risks and reduce their impact, and then analyses the resilience of local regions in the face of these risks.
