Housner, George W.
Presents the rationale and framework for the U.S. Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (USDNDR), commencing in 1990. Such a Decade would initiate an integrated U.S. program in natural hazard reduction and would form the U.S. contribution to the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR), also to begin in 1990. As set forth by the U.N., the IDNDR will focus on earthquakes, windstorms (cyclones, tornadoes, typhoons, hurricanes), tsunamis (³tidal waves²), floods, landslides, volcanic eruptions, wildfires, and insect infestations. All of these hazards threaten the U.S. and have caused many notable disasters. Both the risks and consequences of disasters can be expected to intensify unless concerted action is taken.Housner, George W. is the author of 'Reducing Disasters Toll The U.S. Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction' with ISBN 9780756729318 and ISBN 0756729319.
