Introduction
My name is Åsa Davidsson and I currently work at the Risk and Environmental studies, Karlstad University, Sweden. I have an interdisciplinary approach of environmental studies and risk management. My research field is natural hazard related disasters and the positive changes for the environment that these disasters might generate -a window of opportunity. For instance policy changes, increased protection of environmental areas or an environmental friendly way of living. A disaster have the potential ability to enhance opportunities for the environment, the difficulty is to find them.
