Om boka

Natural hazards, such as floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, typhoons, and wildfires, present significant challenges for managing risk and vulnerability. It is crucial to understand how communities, nations, and international regimes and organizations attempt to manage risk and promote resilience in the face of major disruption to the built and natural environment and social systems. The Oxford Encyclopedia of Natural Hazards Governance offers an integrated framework
for defining, assessing, and understanding natural hazards governance practices, processes, and dynamics - a framework that is essential for addressing these challenges. Through a collection of over 85 peer-reviewed articles, written by global experts in their fields, it provides a uniquely
comprehensive treatment and current state of knowledge of the range of key governance issues. Led by Editor in Chief Brian J. Gerber and Associate Editors Thomas A. Birkland, Ann-Margaret Esnard, Bruce Glavovic, Timothy Sim, Christine Wamsler, and Benjamin Wisner, the work addresses key theoretic gaps on hazards governance in general, and clarifies the sometimes disjointed research coverage of hazards governance on different scales, with national, international, local, regional, and comparative
perspectives. It provides a comprehensive framework for clarifying how governance processes and practices are related to variations in actual performance in terms of natural hazard events, and explicates a broad range of critical conceptual issues in natural hazards governance by providing syntheses
of extant knowledge.
