Summary
"Resilience is a growing and vital concept in a world increasingly faced with the devastating effects of climate change. Cities, rural areas, and entire regions must learn to adapt to natural disasters and long-term socioecological changes caused by a changing climate. This book presents some of the latest research on resilience strategies around the world. Research such as this is necessary to create new ideas and to evaluate established ones in an effort to make communities more adaptable and to increase people's survival and quality of life while living with the reality of climate change. Part I of this valuable compendium offers researchers' definitions of resilience, as well as various ways of measuring it, since resilience is still a concept in transition. Part II describes some general strategies for increasing communities' resilience at multiple levels. Parts III and IV dive into the specific dimensions of resilience, tying it to both energy infrastructure and systems and public health. This easily accessible reference volume offers a comprehensive guide to this rapidly growing field. The up-to-date research provides urban planners and city managers with important information that will help guide policies for cities to adapt to natural disasters and other factors caused by a changing climate. This compendium captures and integrates the current work being done in this vitally important field."--
