About this book

This book is part of a six-volume series on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience. The series aims to fill in gaps in theory and practice in the Sendai Framework, and provides additional resources, methodologies and communication strategies to enhance the plan for action and targets proposed by the Sendai Framework. The series will appeal to a broad range of researchers, academics, students, policy makers and practitioners in engineering, environmental science and geography, geoscience, emergency management, finance, community adaptation, atmospheric science and information technology. 

This volume discusses how to measure and build disaster resilience at society’s capacity, drawing upon individual, institutional and collective resources to cope with and adapt to the demands and challenges of natural disaster occurrences. The book will serve as a guide, outlining the key indicators of disaster resilience in urban and rural settings, and the resources and strategies needed to build resilient communities in accordance with the targets of the Sendai Framework. Readers will learn about multi-risk reduction approaches using computational methods, data mining techniques, and System Thinking at various scales, as well as institutional and infrastructure resilience strategies based on several case studies.

His research focuses mainly on statistical and environmental hydrology and climate change. In particular, he is working on modeling natural hazards including flood, drought, storm, wind, and pollution toward a sustainable environment. Formerly, he was a Visiting Professor at Princeton University, University of ETH Zurich, and McGill University. He has contributed to more than 600 publications in journals, books, or as technical reports, and he is the Founder and Chief Editor of the International Journal of Hydrology Science & Technology. Eslamian is now associate editor of four important publications: Journal of Hydrology (Elsevier), Eco-Hydrology and Hydrobiology (Elsevier), Journal of Water Reuse and Desalination (IWA) and Journal of the Saudi Society of Agricultural Sciences (Elsevier).

Professor Eslamian is the editor and author of approximately 35 books and 180 chapter books. The editorship of ten handbooks published by Taylor & Francis (CRC Press): the three-volume Handbook of Engineering Hydrology in 2014, Urban Water Reuse Handbook in 2016, Underground Aqueducts Handbook (2017), the three-volume Handbook of Drought and Water Scarcity (2017), Constructed Wetlands: Hydraulic Design (2020) and Handbook of Irrigation System Selection for Semi-Arid Regions (2020). An Evaluation of Groundwater Storage Potentials in a Semiarid Climate and Advances in Hydrogeochemistry Research by Nova Science Publishers (USA) are also his book publications in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
