Item description for World Disasters Report (World Disasters Report , No 3) by International Federation Of Red Cross And Red Crescent Societies Staff...

The World Disasters Report, the first of its kind, makes a major contribution towards a more professional response to disasters worldwide. Drawing on the experience and expertise of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the world's oldest and largest disaster agency, the Report provides a clear analysis and discussion of modern disaster trends, supported throughout by numerous facts and statistics. It covers in particular the following key features: - The regional distribution of disasters and the main issues relating to disaster response - Trends in the changing nature of disasters - The causes and effects of today's disasters and the vulnerability of certain groups of people to such events - Common questions raised and misconceptions held about disasters - The impact and effects of the main common types of disasters, and an examination of how such events have been tackled - Various disaster definitions, developed to assist disaster analysis and research - A comprehensive compilation of global disaster statistics, prepared by the Brussels-based Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) - A full listing of organisations involved in disasters worldwide. An essential source of reference on disaster issues for governments, local authorities and indigenous community groups, the World Disasters Report will also be of great practical value to all relief agencies.
