Bulgaria has risk of river flooding, urban flooding, and wildfire. It has a medium risk of experiencing earthquakes, water scarcity, and extreme heat, and low to very low risk of landslides, coastal flooding, and storms. Flooding is the natural hazard with highest incidence. Risks for flooding is higher near river systems while risk for drought and wildfire is higher in the continental areas. High levels of inequality and access to health systems, cooling systems, and other services could influence people’s ability to endure hazards.
This section provides a summary of key natural hazards and their associated socioeconomic impacts in a given country. And it allows quick evaluation of most vulnerable areas through the spatial comparison of natural hazard data with development data, thereby identifying exposed livelihoods and natural systems.
