About the product

In the past decades, natural and human systems have grown greatly intertwined and the distinction between 'acts of Man' and 'acts of Nature' has become increasingly blurred. This publication discusses such areas as: what's natural about a disaster, resource depletion: nature strikes back, reconciliating man and nature to reduce disasters, preparing for disasters, the cost of disasters, human settlements and the environment.
