This book provides accessible and up-to-date analyses of disasters and development linkages, addressing planning and response activities that accompany this field. Social, economic and environmental hazards, vulnerabilities and risks are examined in an interdisciplinary way, and the part of the book focused on disaster-orientated practice explores accompanying learning and planning processes. These include early warning and risk management, disaster mitigation, response and recovery as development concerns.
It examines evidence of how an integrated approach can put people at the centre of disaster reduction and development and put disaster reduction into development and recovery.
No recent text examines this link and no other book covers disaster risk reduction, despite wide occurrence of the debate. With the benefit of the author's long experience with this field Disaster and Development addresses the key themes, with regular use of case studies. It demonstrates that beyond coping with crises, that disaster reduction is a pursuit for the well-being and security of future generations.
