Pandemics. Climate change. Infrastructure collapse. Cyberattacks. Nuclear conflict. How can we prepare for and prevent the 21st-century disasters on the horizon?
The book "Rethinking Readiness" offers an expert introduction to human-made threats and vulnerabilities, with a focus on opportunities to reimagine how we approach disaster preparedness.
