As indicated from the preceding review, many aspects of hazard adjustment adoption and Implementation have been investigated within the realm of hazard research, while other aspects have been addressed by researchers in related areas. Review of this research has identified a variety of theoretical perspectives, a number of inconsistent results, and some important neglected issues. These problems all support a need for a more comprehensive theoretical formulation of the hazard adjustment process and an extensive program of research to provide the foundations for more sustainable development in areas that are vulnerable to natural hazards.
