Community, Environment and Disaster Risk Management

Community, Environment and Disaster Risk Management deals with a wide range of issues relating to global environmental hazards, natural and man-made disasters, and approaches to disaster risk reduction.

As people and communities are the first and the most important responders to disasters and environment-related problems, this series aims to analyse critical field-based mechanisms which link community, policy and governance systems.

The series is built on field evidence and community practices, and provides specific tools and guiding frameworks with appropriate academic analysis. This series is the long-awaited missing link between academic research and field practice in the environment and disaster management field.

Coverage includes, but is not restricted to:

  • Community-based natural resource management
  • Community-based environmental management
  • Community-based disaster risk management
  • Climate change adaptation
  • Urban risk reduction
  • Public health crisis management
  • Terrorism and complex emergency response
  • Human security
  • Forest management
  • Coastal zone management
  • Post-disaster recovery experiences
  • Corporate community interface on environment and disaster management.

This series is indexed in Scopus.

Volumes from this series are included in the Thomson Reuters Book Citation Index.
