Disaster Prevention Policies: A Challenging and Critical Outlook

Abstract : Disaster Prevention Policies: A Challenging and Critical Outlook discusses the ever-evolving threats associated with disasters and their prevention, presenting the widely known paradox in the field that "the more we know, the more we manage, and yet, the more we are supposed to lose", investigating, in-depth, this famous paradox and proposing solutions that will help readers understand and reconsider its existence. The authors also discuss conditionings behind this paradox, helping readers understand the existing solutions, also suggesting how to reduce the limitations of DRR policies.
