Springer | Natural Hazards | July 25, 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319388746 | 130 pages | pdf | 6.41 mb
Authors: Siegel, Frederic R.
Uniquely evaluates the status of prediction possibilities, the potential of preventing or minimizing the damage done by disasters, and what can be done to prepare for disasters before they impact and in the post-impact time
Stresses the importance of planning for triggered events that may follow natural or human generated hazards and how hazard impacts are affected by population growth and density
Addresses mitigation economics and funding possibilities
This book advances a three-step program for mitigation of natural and anthropogenic hazards, addressing mitigation economics and funding possibilities to meet the needs of at risk countries that lack the financial resources to invest in disaster reduction programs. Within the context of mitigation, this book covers prediction-prevention-preparedness for global warming/climate change as existing and progressive processes that create or abet slow developing or rapidly occurring hazards that endanger society such as sea level rise, extreme weather events, threats to food/water security, and the spread of infectious diseases.
