Environmental hazards and disasters: contexts, perspectives and management

Source(s):  Wiley-Blackwell (Wiley)

This book focuses on manifested threats to humans and their welfare as a result of natural disasters. The book uses an integrative approach to address socio-cultural, political and physical components of the disaster process. Human and social vulnerability as well as risk to environmental hazards are explored within the comprehensive context of diverse natural hazards and disasters. It includes chapters on key topics such as the application of GIS in hazard studies; resiliency; disasters and poverty; climate change and sustainability and development. This book provides an essential, interdisciplinary text for students, emergency managers, planners and organisations involved in disaster response and mitigation.
