Decision Aid Models for Disaster Management and Emergencies

Topics: Emergency Management,

This book addresses the unique challenges presented by disasters in the modern age, when societies and economic structures are increasingly interconnected and therefore may be deeply affected even by disturbances that are physically far away. Chapters examine humanitarian logistics in the context of disaster management, quantitative models for approaching uncertainties in emergencies, and practical applications of current frameworks. Together, they present information for those tasked with preparing for and mitigating the effects of crises on both small and large scales.
