Handbook for volcanic risk management: prevention, crisis management and resilience


This handbook on volcanic risk management aims at synthesizing acquired knowledge in a practical and useful way to cover the main aspects of volcanic risk management, such as prevention, preparedness, mitigation, intervention, crisis management and resilience. It promotes the creation of an ideal bridge between different stakeholders involved in risk management, improving and facilitating interactions among authorities and scientists. This work is based on current scientific research and the shared experience of the different partners as well as on international good practices previously recommended.

It is divided into six main sections and takes into account the socio-economic, cultural and agricultural aspects, as well as cost effective monitoring, preparedness and management of volcanic crisis. It is particularly oriented towards developing countries, but it contains useful insights for developed countries, too.
