Safer Cities

These series of publications provide useful and working solutions to the problems of urban disaster mitigation.  The series covers a wide range of urban hazards and approaches to mitigating them.  The series began under the Asian Urban Disaster Mitigation Program (click here for issues 1 to 15).  PROMISE published nine more in the series.  The online versions for all issues appear here.
