Prof. Muneta Yokomatsu, DPRI, Kyoto University and Dr. Stefan Hochrainer-Stigler of IIASA published the first book on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience under the Disaster and Risk Research: GADRI Book Series by Springer Japan.
This book provides insight on how disaster risk management can increase the resilience of society to various natural hazards. The multi-dimensionality of resilience and the various different perspectives in regards to disaster risk reduction are taken explicitly into account by providing studies and approaches on different scales and ranging from natural science based methods to social science frameworks. For all chapters, special emphasis is placed on implementation aspects and specifically in regards to the targets and priorities for action laid out in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The chapters provide also a starting point for interested readers on specific issues of resilience and therefore include extensive reference material and important future directions for research.
