Abstract

I started out this essay by saying we would look at the first three published GARs from a non-traditional point of view, one that takes disasters to be endogenous to the way we live rather than as exogenous events against which our way of life must be protected. I adopted this perspective because it affords a way to address disaster risk reduction holistically rather than by treating disasters as discrete events that seem just to happen by themselves.
