Broadens understanding on urban planning in earthquake disaster management
Outlines vulnerability, planning, risk assessment and reconstruction
Includes remote sensing/geo-information and aspects of architecture and urbanism in the reconstruction of disaster
The classical field dealing with earthquakes is called “earthquake engineering” and considered to be a branch of structural engineering. In projects dealing with strategies for earthquake risk mitigation, urban planning approaches are often neglected. Today interventions are needed on a city, rather than a building, scale. This work deals with the impact of earthquakes, including also a broader view on multihazards in urban areas. Uniquely among other works in the field, particular importance is given to urban planning issues, in conservation of heritage and emergency management. Multicriteria decision making and broad participation of those affected by disasters are included.
