The book presents ways how the societies can became more resilient in the case of natural hazards. The emphasis is on so called social capacity building for natural hazards. This topic is increasingly gaining relevance together with the research shift in natural hazards towards social sciences. Particular attention is paid to social vulnerability and its assessment, as well as to risk communication and risk education as specific strategies of social capacity building.

This article presents the suitability of the Real Estate Record – a web application of the Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia – for assessing the damage caused by natural disasters. We performed an analysis for the village of Čezsoča, which was devastated by an earthquake in 1998 (M 5.6). We compared the data on earthquake damage with the data on the realestate value from the Real Estate Record. Such comparisons make it possible to establish the damage potential of future natural disasters.

Avalanche susceptibility maps offer a quick and effective way to determine areas that people should not exploit or any development would require special construction and other prevention measures. On the example of the Municipality of Železniki and the Municipality of Kranjska Gora avalanche hazard in hilly and mountainous areas of the Gorenjska Region (NW Slovenia) is presented.

The paper presents the municipal avalanche maps for the Central Karavanks (for four Slovenian and three Austrian municipalities), making of avalanche bulletin for the area and the organization of several courses in the field of avalanche prevention.

This article addresses the concept of economic resilience and resilience in the case of natural disasters, and the relationship between resilience and vulnerability. It explains what influences resilience, and, in its central part, uses two completely different cases (a natural disaster and tourism recovery) to present social resilience during a crisis event. The starting point of the research is the return to the state before a disturbance, whereby time and financial aspects are evaluated.
