Risk returns

This book was published for launch at the third Session of Global Platform for Disaster Reduction (GPDR) and it is the latest in a series of volumes addressing natural disasters, and how their impact can be reduced by effective capacity building and prevention strategies.

The book presents a selection of examples and experiences of disaster reduction that responds to the need for identifying good practices and sharing experiences and information, identified by many - including Governments - during the preparatory process for the GPDR. Its subject also considers issues discussed in related publications of ISDR partners. Finally, it contributes to the comprehensive range of literature on disaster risk reduction.
