    Default technogenic vs. man-induced vs. man-triggered, etc.

    What is the antonym of "natural emergency": technogenic emergency, man-induced emergency, man-triggered emergency or anything else?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've see "natural or man-made disasters."

    I've never seen the word "technogenic" before.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
