A Better Climate for Disaster Risk Management
A Better Climate for Disaster Risk Management. International Research Institute for Climate and Society. 2011.
Climate-related disasters are by far the most frequent natural disasters, exacting a heavy toll on people and economies. Their frequency and economic losses have steadily increased over the past few decades, stretching the response capacities of governments and humanitarian organizations. The case studies and experiences presented in this book draw on a wealth of practical experience from within the humanitarian community. They acknowledge the enormous effort and investment by very many national and local governments, international organizations, and
an increasing range of other actors in the field of climate information for disaster risk management.
