We have produced this book for practitioners. Too much valuable research and reflection on disaster, hazards, vulnerability, risk and risk reduction has been written in technical language and published in either expensive or obscure places, or both. The editors have worked closely with practitioners at various scales for many years, probably well over 100 years if you total up our careers. We remain closely involved with networks that include many practitioners: the Gender and Disaster Network, Many Strong Voices, the Global Network of Civil Society Organisations for Disaster Reduction, the ECB project, Peri-Peri, Duryog Nivaran, the Community Based Adaptation project, and the RADIX network. At a further distance, we are also engaged with ODI’s Humanitarian Practice Network, the Sphere Project and ALNAP, amongst others.
