Disaster Economics

A collection of resources focused on the economic impacts of natural and other disasters. “Capital assets and infrastructure such as housing, schools, factories and equipment, roads, dams and bridges are lost. Human capital is depleted due to the loss of life, the loss of skilled workers and the destruction of education infrastructure that disrupts schooling” (United Nations). Resources in this list include case studies, workshop proceedings, and mitigation and planning toolkits to help minimize the effects of such losses.
