One topic of this paper is risk and risk management regarded from both engineering and societal points of view. The various aspects of risk are often complex and need to be investigated from different perspectives. One main part of the paper will discuss risks that should be considered by structural engineers, when they plan, design or build structures and infrastructures. Related to this is the part dealing with Natural Hazards and Disasters and their influence on the built environment and society. One section deals with vulnerability and resilience of cities, especially in environmentally constrained and urbanized areas. A special topic here is the risk of flooding due to rising sea level caused by a possible climate change.

Nyckelord: Risk, Natural Hazards, Disasters, Vulnerability, Risk management, Risk reduction, Resilience, Extreme events, Flooding, Climate change.
