The Territorium – International Journal of Risks is a peer-reviewed (twice a year) journal that aims to disseminate relevant and high-quality scientific research carried out in the field of the cyndinique sciences, dealing with the themes of hazards, dangers, risks, treating their prevention, as well as helping in emergency situations or, still, the consequences of their manifestations, and the rehabilitation, recovery, reconstruction of areas affected by them.
