Anticipating vulnerability in infrastructure(s). Transcript of a Keynote Presentation at the HIGH FLYERS THINK TANK - Extreme natural hazards. University of Melbourne, Tuesday 30 October 2007

Barnes, Paul H. (2007) Anticipating vulnerability in infrastructure(s). Transcript of a Keynote Presentation at the HIGH FLYERS THINK TANK - Extreme natural hazards. University of Melbourne, Tuesday 30 October 2007.

Abstract

The presentation will cover the following points: precursors to Prevention, Preparedness, Response & Recovery; the notion of the interconnected world of infrastructure, certainly in the urban settings that we find in this country and many other developed economies in the modern world; the issue of vulnerability as possibly a more important focus of our analysis before we get to the PPRR; and a slightly different take on anticipation from what you have heard earlier this morning: in terms of knowing our systems of infrastructure, how can we anticipate where natural hazards and unusual climatic phenomena may impact?

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
