Synopsis

The world is becoming increasingly vulnerable to natural disasters. Disaster data in recent years shows an increase in the physical, social, and economic impacts of these tragedies. While a global perspective of disaster management is necessary, it is also important to emphasize local solutions. This volume targets some of the key issues of disaster management on the local level, focusing on innovative research and applications. A reference book for researchers and practitioners, this text explores different types of hazards and disasters and examines the interrelated themes of risk and vulnerability, technology, education, and community.
