The EU Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre has produced its first flagship science report addressing the multi-risk impacts of natural and human-induced hazards. It presents the state of science in Disaster Risk Management (DRM), and shows practical use of scientific knowledge in DRM actions in Europe.
It is the first in a series and therefore comprehensive in scope but selective in topic. It shows posibilites to strengthen society’s resilience by using science and technology.
The entire volume consits of:
- Current status of disaster risk management and policy frameworks
- Understanding disaster risk: risk assessment methodologies and examples
- Understanding disaster risk: hazard related risk issues
- Geophysical risk
- Hydrological risk
- Meteorological, climatological and biological risk
- Technological risk
- Communicating disaster risk
- Managing disaster risk
