The first to examine and compare country-specific and regional approaches to the emergency management of disasters, this book illustrates how initiating long-term regional collaborations on disaster-risk reduction and risk management help build resiliency and adaptability and reduce the impact of natural disasters. It takes stock of current disaster management systems across regions and countries, promotes an integrated approach, and offers ideas to foster new synergies and partnerships between governments. Written by a host of international experts, this book provides a platform to discuss future needs and priorities in an effort to strengthen and improve regional responsiveness.
