dc.description.abstractThis book is a compilation of hundreds of reports and articles about the 2004 Asian Tsunami disaster and underlines the fact that global disaster risks are highly concentrated in poor countries. The death toll following the 2004 Asian tsunami - close to 230,000 people - was stunning. The devastation that the tsunami caused highlights the need to strengthen approaches to disaster risk reduction activities across Asia. Summarizing hundreds of reports and articles about the disaster, this book underlines the fact that global disaster risks are highly concentrated in poor countries. And within those countries, it is usually poorer communities who are especially hard-hit when disasters strike. Analysts and administrators involved in disaster response activities from international organizations, NGOs and national governments will find this a unique and important resource for their forward planning. The book will also prove to be invaluable for academics and students studying disaster management and human security, international aid policy, international relations, and Asian economic issues.'
