The major challenges of the 21st century faced by human beings are: how to achieve water security, food security, energy security and environmental security? Owing to enhanced natural/anthropogenic disasters worldwide, especially in developing countries, these challenges become much more complicated and daunting. Therefore, it is the need of the hour to highlight the risk of different disasters as well as the modern tools and techniques to minimize disaster losses.
Disaster management being highly multidisciplinary in nature, a comprehensive book dealing with different aspects of disaster management in the face of climate change and socio-economic changes, and encompassing all the important disasters faced by humankind is presently lacking; the existing books, though highly limited, provide cursory treatment of the topic or simply present introductory information. The present book is an attempt to fulfill this gap. This book provides clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date information about different facets of disaster management. The information contained in this book will not only serve as general guidelines for effective disaster management, but will also help educate engineers and scientists about various natural and anthropogenic hazards as well as modern tools/techniques and approaches for their mitigation.
This book will be very useful to the teachers, students and researchers of civil, environmental, agricultural, and land and water resources engineering fields as well as to the planners and decision makers, especially of developing nations. This book will be of interest to researchers in the fields of civil, environmental, agriculture and land and water resources engineering, as well as to planners and decision makers.
