Description

The Routledge Handbook of Disaster Risk Reduction Including Climate Change Adaptation aims to provide an overview and critique of the current state of knowledge, policy, and practice, encouraging engagement, and reflection on bringing the two sectors together. This long-awaited and welcomed volume makes a compelling case that a common research agenda and a series of practical policies and policy recommendations can and should be put in place.

Over 40 contributions explore DRR including CCA in five parts. The first part presents and interrogates much of the typical vocabulary seen in DRR including CCA, not only pointing out the useful and not-so-useful dimensions, but also providing alternatives and positive examples. The second part explains how to move forward creating and supporting positive crossovers and connections, while the third one explores some aspects of multi-dimensional approaches to knowing and understanding. The fourth part argues for a balanced approach to governance, taking both governmental and non-governmental governance, as well as different scales of governance, into consideration. The final part of the Handbook emphasises DRR including CCA as an investment, rather than a cost, and connects its further implementation with livelihoods of people around the world.

This handbook highlights the connections amongst the processes of dealing with disasters and dealing with climate change. It demonstrates how little climate change brings which is new and emphasises the strengths of placing climate change within wider contexts in order to draw on all our strengths while overcoming limitations with specialities. It will prove to be a valuable guide for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, academics, policy makers, and practitioners with an interest in disaster risk reduction and climate change.

Reviews

'This comprehensive handbook breaks critically important new ground. The five primary sections of the book offer a novel integrative framework for synthesizing the areas of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The result is both a practical guide and an intellectually ambitious project for turning knowledge into action. This handbook should be on the bookshelf of every person who needs a set of guiding policy principles for reducing the rising toll of disasters.'

Professor Lori Peek, Department of Sociology, Director of Natural Hazards Center, University of Colorado – Boulder, USA

'This handbook is especially helpful for our research institution in developing sound research design on disaster related topic. It enlightens us with the clear definition in disaster related topics that are usually misunderstood (e.g. vulnerability, resilience, risk) and how to measure them. Thus, with this handbook, we can update our research methodology to the international standard and subsequently gets updated of the current issues on disaster and climate changes such as human rights and gender. This volume is a good investment for those who do research or consultancies in disaster related studies as it is equipped with science proof methods to measure complex indicators such as resilience and sustainability. The book is definitely a mitigation measure to research failures!'
