Abstract:
In recent years, dozens of cities across the globe have been hit by large-scale catastrophes of every kind: natural disaster, geopolitical conflict, food shortages, disease and contagion, terrorist attacks. These events harm vulnerable individuals, destabilise communities and threaten organisations and even whole societies. We are at greater risk than ever from city-wide catastrophe, and as the severity and frequency of these disasters increase, we must become better at preparing for, responding to and recovering from them. This book combines vivid stories with practical insights (such as how to disaster-proof a building) and research to help build a future in which individuals, companies and entire societies face disaster by creating more dynamic, more resilient cities.
