SUST W3360: Natural Disasters and Sustainable Development | J. Mutter

T/Th 6:10-7:25 | 3 Points
This course investigates the impact of natural disasters on sustainable developing with emphasis on the role they may play in development countries. In the first decade of the 21st century an unusually large number of natural disasters – from earthquakes and associated tsunamis, to hurricanes floods and droughts — have struck across the world, affecting countries from the wealthiest and most openly governed to the poorest with failed, fragile or authoritarian governments. The socio-economic effects in all places affected by these disasters are still unfolding. Some seem to be deeply impacted while others have had relatively little lasting impact.
