      The disaster is the payoff at the end of the scene.*This is what readers have been waiting for—often, with a delicious sense of dread. This is the answer, at least partially, to that all-important question, “What’s gonna happen? The final act in the three-act structure of your scene is the outcome. The first two parts of the scene (the goal and the conflict) asked a question.   "Road to Disaster" is a compelling account of how that expenditure was made and will leave readers wondering how new investments, in Afghanistan, Iran and elsewhere, are being decided now.

    Disaster Management Ethics Sustainable transformation as a conceptual framework The management of disasters calls for quick relief to address immediate needs and stabilize the affected population. While often understood in these immediate terms, disaster responses also include planning aimed toward rehabilitation and development. As noted in the committee’s letter report, significant legal challenges are associated with catastrophic disasters involving the allocation of scarce health care resources and the establishment of crisis standards of care (CSC). These issues cut across nearly all levels of the public and private sectors involved in coordinating and providing emergency care during disaster .

    This book provides with various decisions analysis theories and support tools in complex systems in general and in disaster management in particular. The book is also generated during a long-term preparation of a European project proposal among most leading experts in the areas related to the book title. Abstract. Science and technology (S&T) is the root of informed decision-making in disaster risk reduction (DRR). Role of S&T has got enhanced attention in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) and there has been prominent global and several regional initiatives to enhance multistakeholder partnership in implementing science-based decision-making.
