Preparing for the day after: a picture e-book on disaster management

Source(s):  Google

This photojournalistic book is a tribute to the millions of people who have lost their lives in natural calamities, published on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Indian Ocean Tsunami disaster. It presents an authoritative analysis and compendium of the evolution of disaster management, the concept of disaster risk reduction, which evolved as a post script to humanity’s biggest recorded disaster – the Asian tsunami.

The book references official U.N. and country reports, research reports, news media articles and visualizations, and compiles field anecdotes, quotes, best practices, pictures and dissertations, to substantiate issues such as early warning procedures implementation, culture sensitive food security, administrative coordination, mass mortality management, impact of calamities on agriculture, livelihood, fisheries, biodiversity and so on. It also articulates a geological perspective of climate change. The book can serve as an awareness manual to trainee administrators, NGOs and disaster managers worldwide.
