Format: Paperback
Any library located in a coastal region catering to urban planners, disaster preparedness professionals and others will welcome PLANNING FOR COASTAL RESILIENCE: BEST PRACTICES FOR CALAMITOUS TIMES. It's more than just an overview of possible disasters: it offers some key solutions based on the concept of resilience - the ability to recover quickly from disaster. Community sustainability is at the heart of this resilience planning and provides a different approach to crisis management.
