Population shifts and an increase in the number of both natural and manmade disasters are having a profound effect on urban and rural habitats globally. Discussing for the first time the role of spatial planning after significant disasters, this book brings together the experiences and knowledge of international contributors from academia, research, policy, and practice to highlight ongoing efforts to improve spatial resilience across the globe and predict future trends. Comparisons of responses in five countries—the United States, Japan, Indonesia, Slovakia, and Germany—point to the varied influence of significant disasters on spatial planning and resiliency under different legal, administrative, and cultural frameworks, enabling contributors to draw conclusions about the transferability of approaches between different countries.
