The Role of Infrastructure in Disaster Risk Reduction: Capacity Planning for Feasible Resilience and Risk Management offers a comprehensive disaster-planning framework for seven infrastructure layers: civil, civic, social, environmental, financial, educational and cyber infrastructure. This framework includes three steps: 1) disaster impact assessment; 2) infrastructure development strategy (i.e., preparation strategy); and 3) capacity building strategy (i.e., mitigation strategy). With this framework, decision-makers can identify vulnerable infrastructure and then make viable investment plans for reinforcing them by designing a well-balanced preparation and mitigation strategy that would build appropriate capacities for achieving the desired resilience.The book will be useful for all entities involved in dealing with the aftermath of natural disasters, including disaster professionals, first responders, city planners, architects and engineers, educators, students and researchers working on understanding the need for disaster risk reduction and developing innovative solutions for better decision-making.
