  • Synopsis
    Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness and Response brings together, for the first time, information on the activity of British individuals and organizations working in disaster mitigation, preparedness and response. Over 170 returned questionnaires, interviews, reviews and research form the basis of this book. It includes overviews of the scope, content and regional locations of UK disaster activity, breakdown of organization types currently active, funding sources, IDNDR focal points and directories of individuals and organizations working in disaster mitigation, preparedness and response. The text is divided into two sections: the audit and the directory. The former contains the analysis, recommendations and findings of the research, whilst the directory is a compilation of gathered information, presented in usable form for the DMP community.
