Habitat Debate Vol. 12, No. 4, A new start:The paradox of crisis
The wealth of experience and knowledge in disaster management and mitigation can be traced to World War II, and still earlier to the California earthquake of 1906, or even the measurements taken of the biggest volcano blast in recorded history – the devastating explosion of the Indonesian island of Krakatoa in 1883. We at UN-HABITAT and other agencies have learned is that it is important to incorporate proper long-term planning for sustainable development with the best protection against repeat disasters from the outset – indeed from the moment the humanitarian rescue operation begins.
