About this book

This book presents a detailed regional study of the Dongting Lake Area and explores potential avenues and challenges for future flood risk management in China.Focusing on dynamic changes in regional vulnerability to flooding and its relevance for flood risk management, it proposes a new construct of vulnerability based on the co-variance between the negative (exposure) and positive (response capacity) components. Further, it develops an historical approach, including trajectory analysis and a typology of vulnerability, offering insights into the regional dynamics of change. It is a valuable resource for disaster risk researchers and graduate students as well as flood management practitioners and policy-makers.
Guoyi Han is a senior research fellow at the Stockholm Environment Institute in Sweden; both Associate Professor Ying Li and Professor Peijun Shi work at the Beijing Normal University in China.
