Synopsis

Case Studies in Disaster Preparedness: A volume in the Disaster and Emergency Management: Case Studies in Adaptation and Innovation series presents international cases on planning, training, exercise and evaluation, and public information and education when disaster is imminent. Key findings about preparedness from the disaster literature demonstrate how emergency managers can apply these findings. The volume also emphasizes the importance of social engagement and addresses cross-cultural issues and its implications for preparedness in an international context (e.g., for humanitarian aid agencies).



Finally, it illustrates how different sectoral needs (e.g., health care, education, private sector) become a motive for adopting innovation and adaptation as a strategy for preparing for disasters.
