Megacities: vulnerability of infrastructure to natural disasters, summary of presentation

Source(s):  Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)

A/CONF.172/11/Add.5:

This paper addresses the consideration that prevention is better than cure: that planning to minimize the effects of natural hazards is preferable to responding to the often disastrous effects of such hazards.

This paper is a summary of a presentation by Mr. Stuart Mustow, President of the Institute of Civil Engineers and Representative of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations, made at the technical session "Natural disaster reduction: effects of disasters on modern societies" at the World Conference on Natural Disaster Reduction, Yokohama, Japan, 23-27 May 1994.
