    Natural hazards, such as storms, hurricanes, and heavy rains, directly impact agricultural productivity and production in Dominica, leading to landslides and soil erosion, among others. In order to better mitigate the impacts of these hazards and prevent soil erosion, mulching can be used to protect and conserve the soil, and reduce erosion by water and wind. Mulching is a very simple and beneficial practice where organic material, such as crop residues and weeds, or inorganic material, like plastic sheets, is spread over the soil surface.

    Serbia is highly exposed and vulnerable to natural hazards. According to the data available and the INFORM 2015 Risk Index, the country ranks at 87 in the world vulnerability list, with evidently the highest score in the region. The major natural hazards to which Serbia is exposed include floods, drought, storms, heavy rain, atmospheric discharge, hail, landslide or landslip, extreme air temperatures, ice accumulation on the water flow, earthquakes, epidemic livestock diseases and the emergence of pests, and other large-scale natural phenomena, which may endanger the health and lives of people or cause extensive damage. Floods and droughts are the most severe forms of natural disasters in the country, impacting a large number of the population and causing significant economic losses, with the agriculture sector being one of the most affected.
