The impacts of natural and man-made disasters have increased exponentially over the past few decades. Moreover, with our global interconnectedness and the growing scale of disasters, today's catastrophic disasters can have regional, national, and even global economic consequences. Following in the tradition of the successful first edition, Hazards Analysis: Reducing the Impact of Disasters, Second Edition provides a structure and process for understanding the nature of natural and human-caused disasters. Stressing the role of hazard risk management for public, private, and nonprofit organizations, the author and expert contributors cover problem solving, risk analysis, and risk communications to ensure readers are in a position to identify key problems associated with hazards and the risks that they present. The book details a systematic process of hazards identification, vulnerability determination, and consequence assessment for the natural, built, and human environment. Using a cross-disciplinary approach, this book effectively demonstrates how to use the results of vulnerability assessment, spatial analysis, and community planning to reduce adverse disaster outcomes and foster social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Throughout, the book stresses that hazards analysis is not an isolated process but one that must engage the local community. Complete with clearly set objectives, key terms, discussion questions, satellite images and maps, and ancillary websites for further study, this authoritative guide covers every element of the hazard analysis process in a step-by-step format. Hazards Analysis presents time-proven strategies for building sustainable communities, identifying and prioritizing risks, and establishing successful disaster prevention and relief strategies prior to a disaster.

Die in jüngerer Zeit zu konstatierende Wiederentdeckung der Stadt hat die Sehnsucht der Menschen nach der Natur keineswegs verdrängt. Im Gegenteil: Es gilt, innerstädtische Lösungen zu finden, die diesen neu gewachsenen Bedürfnissen gerecht werden, und zwar Lösungen, die gleichzeitig den Anforderungen von Gestaltung, Ökologie, Soziologie und Ökonomie entsprechen. Die Publikation widmet sich dem Thema der innerstädtischen Freiraumgestaltung. Sie dokumentiert 20 aktuell realisierte Beispiele innerhalb Europas, zum überwiegenden Teil mit Grünpflanzungen, entworfen von international renommierten Landschaftsarchitekten, wie etwa Gustafson Porter, Field Operations, Michel Desvigne, Gross.Max, Latz + Partner und West 8. Die Projekte, realisiert zwischen 2004 und 2010, reichen vom innerstädtischen Privatgarten über Plätze, Straßen und Promenaden bis hin zu Großprojekten wie der Revitalisierung von Flussuferbereichen oder Grün-Masterplanungen für ganze Städte. Das städtische Grün leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zum ökologischen Stadtumbau. Die dokumentierten Projekte zeigen in beispielhafter Form, wie dies mit modernsten Materialien und Technologien gelingen kann.

Im Jahr 2050 werden zwei Drittel aller Menschen in Städten leben – wie können Bewohner mit unterschiedlichen kulturellen und religiösen Hintergründen eine friedliche Koexistenz führen? Richard Sennett stellt die Frage nach der Beziehung zwischen urbanem Planen und konkretem Leben: Wie hat sie sich historisch gewandelt? Wie kann eine offene Stadt aussehen, die geprägt ist von Vielfalt und Veränderung – und in der Bewohner Fähigkeiten zum Umgang mit Unsicherheiten entwickeln? Richard Sennett zeigt, warum wir eine Urbanistik brauchen, die eine enge Zusammenarbeit von Planern und Bewohnern einschließt und voraussetzt – und dass eine Stadt voller Widersprüche urbanes Erleben nicht einengt, sondern bereichert.
