Climate and disaster resilience in cities

Source(s):  Emerald Group Publishing Limited (Emerald)

Community, environment and disaster risk management, volume 6:

This book highlights the issues of resilience through regional, national, city and community-based studies. Contributions come from academia, city government networks, city managers, non-government organizations and international agencies such as the World Bank and United Nations. It reflects a unique aspect of a multi-stakeholder perspective and also highlights how to enhance actions at local levels, and how the plans can be implemented through multi-stakeholder collaboration.

It is presented as the first book to combine academic research and field practice in urban risk reduction, focusing especially on climate-related disasters in the Asian region.
