The Role of Infrastructure in Disaster Risk Reduction offers a comprehensive disaster-planning framework for the seven infrastructure layers: civil, civic, social, environmental, financial, educational, and cyber infrastructure. This framework includes three steps: 1) disaster impact assessment; 2) infrastructure development strategy (i.e., preparation strategy); and 3) capacity building strategy (i.e., mitigation strategy). With this framework, decision makers can identify vulnerable infrastructure and then make viable investment plans for reinforcing them by designing a well-balanced preparation and mitigation strategy that would build appropriate capacities for achieving the desired resilience. The resilience of communities or industries to disasters depends on the functioning of critical infrastructure. The Role of Infrastructure in Disaster Risk Reduction will be useful for all entities involved in dealing with the aftermath of natural disasters including disaster professionals, first responders, city planners, architects and engineers, educators, and students and researchers working on understanding the need for disaster risk reduction and developing innovative solutions for better decision-making. Describes the role of infrastructure in disaster risk reduction and management as well as capacity building Provides readers with the tools needed to evaluate the criticality, vulnerability, and severity of impact, as well as the need for evaluating and building the necessary capacities for achieving desired resilience Illustrates the important role of disaster risk reduction through case studies

GET THIS BOOKThe Role of Ecosystems in Disaster Risk Reduction

The uptake of ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction (DRR) is slow, however, despite some success stories. There are multiple reasons for this reluctance: ecosystem management is rarely considered as part of the portfolio of DRR solutions because the environmental and disaster management communities typically work independently from each other; its contribution to DRR is highly undervalued compared to engineered solutions and therefore not given appropriate budget allocations; and there are poor interactions between policymakers and researchers, leading to unclear

South Asia represents a region highly prone to natural disasters. Disasters not only disrupt the normal life of the affected communities and the countries but also impede developmental efforts. By and large, the approach of the major stakeholders has been 'reactive' rather than 'proactive'. There is indeed, a dire need for concerted and well-planned efforts to achieve risk reduction through risk identification, and sharing and transfer of information. This edited volume explores how the risk of disasters can be reduced

This book provides an introduction to the critical role of ecosystem-based disaster risk resilience (Eco-DRR) for building community resilience to multiple environmental risks such as rising heat, water stress, and pollution. Blue-green infrastructure (BGI) is an Eco-DRR tool that is an under-explored paradigm and can respond as one common strategy to targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals (UNDP), Climate Agreements (UNEP), the Sendai Framework (UNISDR), and the New Urban Agenda (UNCHS). Highlighted here in a systematic way is the

Climate change is increasingly of great concern to the world community. The earth has witnessed the buildup of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere, changes in biodiversity, and more occurrences of natural disasters. Recently, scientists have begun to shift their emphasis away from curbing carbon dioxide emission to adapting to carbon dioxide emission. The increase in natural disasters around the world is unprecedented in earth's history and these disasters are often associated to climate changes. Many nations along the coastal
