  • Policies for resilience against disasters use forecasts for short and longer term environment hazards, both natural and artificial. Although the methods used are increasing in reliability, significant uncertainties remain in the underpinning science and in the data. The vulnerability of communities to environmental risk is increasing because of economic and social factors, which also need to be better understood. This paper shows why, over the long term, engineering, medical and social policies… CONTINUE READING
