Disasters and Economic Recovery, Paperback / softback Book

Disasters and Economic Recovery Paperback / softback

Part of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience series

Paperback / softback


1. It places economic health and redevelopment at the forefront of knowing when a community has recovered. 2. It looks at the differences between different countries, their intergovernmental arrangements, and collaborative structures to determine whether lessons can be gleaned for other countries facing the laborious task of rebuilding. 3. It provides quantitative measures to analyze the recovery of an economy in the postdisaster crises which can be duplicated in other future disasters. 4. Finally, it provides a framework for policymakers and decision makers who are involved in the rebuilding process. Because it is international in focus, it is the hope of the author that this book provides concrete steps that can be used both domestically and internationally in planning economic development activities in recovering places.
