Identifies essential characteristics of socio-technical disaster management systems in order to help disaster managers and practitioners improve their planning and policies
Chapter 1. Avoidable Deaths in Disasters .- Chapter 2. Systems Failure in Disasters .- Chapter 3. Super-Cyclone in 1999.- Chapter 4. Cyclone Phailin in 2013.- Chapter 5: Systems Failure Revisited.
This book addresses one of the most fundamental questions of the 21st century: why deaths continue to occur in natural disasters despite the tremendous advancements in disaster management science and weather forecasting systems, increased sophistication of human-built environments and ongoing economic and policy development worldwide. By presenting an interdisciplinary tool for analysing 'systems failure', the book provides concrete suggestions on how deaths may be reduced in resource-poor contexts. It goes beyond traditional risk and vulnerability perspectives and demonstrates that deaths in disasters are complex problems that can be solved by adopting a socio-technical perspective to improve current disaster management systems in the developing world.
