Risk assessment is a prerequisite for understanding the Natech risk and for determining if and which prevention and preparedness measures should be implemented to reduce the risk. The analysis of multihazard risks is a highly complex task and there is no consolidated methodology for assessing the Natech risk. This chapter introduces selected qualitative and semiquantitative Natech risk-analysis methodologies, approaches, and tools of varying levels of resolution. The outcome of these methodologies can be used for evaluating the risk in accordance with the risk-acceptability criteria in place.
