The results can be found in this book, divided in four chapters:

  • Research

The book lends assistance and provides suggestions how all phases of humanitarian operations can be considered adequately, from the first response and recovery to rehabiltation and mitigaton as well as prevention and preparation, in order to build resilient communities in an interconnected and globalized world.
