Beschreibung

Written from a global perspective on risk, hazards, and disasters, Introduction to International Disaster Management provides practitioners, educators and students with a comprehensive overview of the players, processes and special issues involved in the management of large-scale natural and technological disasters. The book discusses special issues encountered in the management of international disasters, and explains the various private, non-governmental, national, and international agencies that assist in preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery during national and regional events.

Concentrating on the four major phases of emergency management - mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery - Introduction to International Disaster Management deals with such timely topics as Hurricane Katrina, the 2004 Asian tsunami, and SARS. It also serves as a reference to governmental and other agencies involved in international disaster management activities. This book is the first of its kind to take a global approach to the topic of international disaster management.

* Data, discussions, and outcomes for recent major and catastrophic disasters including Cyclone Nargis, earthquakes in Yogyakarta, China, Pakistan, and Chile, the H1N1 pandemic, and the tsunami in American Samoa * Added material on hazards, catastrophic risk management, mitigation, and disaster myths * Expanded sections on public disaster preparedness and disaster recovery best practices * Commentary on the latest research in disaster management and policy studies
