"Natural hazard mitigation" describes and analyzes the way that hazard mitigation has been carried out in the United States under our national disaster law, the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. The book is an informative and eye-opening examination for planners, policymakers, students of planning and geography, and professionals working for government agencies that deal with natural hazards.
"The authors of "Natural hazard mitigation" offer compening recommendations for reforming federal and state institutional systems, policies, and mitigation program tools designed to enhance the capacity and commitment of state and local governments to make mitigation happen. "Natural hazard mitigation" is a book that demands the attention of anyone concerned about the high public costs of natural disasters in the United States: elected and appointed officials at all levels of government, business, homeowners, and taxpayers, as well as public policy and planning scholars."
