An increasing number of large-scale natural disasters have affected millions of people in recent years. Major earthquakes, floods, And hurricanes, have caused great destruction of property and loss of life, while forest fires, pipeline failures, and bombings have created equally devastating effects on a smaller scale.
The increased threats are the topic of the Third International Conference on Disaster Management and Human Health Risk, convened so that experts on public health, security, and disaster management could share information. This book contains the papers presented at the conference. Topics covered include: Disaster Monitoring and Mitigation; Disaster Analysis; Emergency Preparedness; Critical Information and Communication Technologies for Disaster Preparedness and Response; Risk Mitigation; Multihazard Risk Assessment; Learning from Disasters; Socio-Economic Issues.
