Overview of Managing Natural Disasters Book
This book deals with managing different types of natural disasters. These are covered under four different sections. The first section deals with hydrological disasters (Flood, Dam Bursts, Tsunami, El Nino and Ground Water Pollution). The second section covers coastal and marine disasters (Sea Level Rise, Coastal Zone Management and Marine Pollution). All wind and water related disasters (Cyclones, Storms, Lightning and Frost) have been covered in the third section. The last section deals with all kinds of geological disasters (Earthquake, Volcano, Landslides, Glaciers, Land Degradation, Wildfires, Droughts, Famine, and Desertification). Land use planning has become a burning issue in India. As more information is now available about the nature of natural hazards, it is therefore possible to integrate more detailed hazards data into the ongoing planning and decision-making processes. Technology improvements such as the use of Geographic Information Systems, allow numerous factors, including natural disasters, to be considered in making land-use decisions. Despite this, there are still various economic and political obstacles in implementing policies to prohibit, restrict, or even discourage development and redevelopment in high-risk areas. This book, Managing Natural Disasters, has been written from an Indian perspective. The book provides practitioners, educators and students with a comprehensive overview of the processes and issues involved in the management of natural disasters. It will also serve as a reference to governmental and other agencies involved in natural disaster management activities.
