Disasters and the Small Dwelling Perspectives for the UN IDNDR by Yasemin Aysan

This book contains the proceeding of the conferences on Disasters and the Small Dwelling, held at Oxford in September 1990. The 26 papers cover recent experiences of post-disaster shelter and housing provision, review what has been achieved, what needs disseminating and implementing, and assesses what needs further development. The volume thus defines an international agenda to achieve safer low-income dwellings in the course of the 1990s, designated International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction by the UN. It will be essential reading for anyone - whether governmental or non-governmental agency officials, academic researchers, representatives of private industry or consultants - whose work involves analysis, shelter, mitigation and reconstruction programmes for low-income dwellings in disaster-prone areas.

About the Author

The editors, Yasemin Aysan and David Davis are, respectively, Director and Deputy Director of the Oxford Polytechnic Disaster Management Centre, Oxford, UK. The conference was jointly organized by the Oxford Polytechnic Disaster Management Centre and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research, Buffalo, USA.
