Fresh Lessons on Preparedness for Disasters

While the traditional DRR strategy has been on prevention, search and rescue, and ‘building back better’, it is clear that more attention needs to be given to focus research and resources on the impact of the aftermath of disasters. This chapter examines the nature of disaster risk, and offers fresh analysis and recommendations for action with special reference to small and island states, to avert and mitigate the wide-ranging service implications of the aftershocks of disasters.
