In this eye-opening journey through modern and ancient risk management practices, Jon Coaffee explains why we need to find a new way to navigate the deeply uncertain world that we live in. Examining how governments have responded to terrorist threats, climate change, and natural disasters, Coaffee shows how and why these measures have proven inadequate and what should be done to make us more resilient. While conventional approaches have focused on planning and preparing for disruptions and enhanced our ability to \"bounce back,\" our focus should be on anticipating future challenges and enhancing our capacity to adapt to new threats.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Introduction -- Fate, Choice and the Birth of Risk -- The Resilience Turn and the Permanent State of Adaption -- Anticipating Climate Armageddon -- Responsive Critical Infrastructure Lifelines -- Security, Resilience and Preparedness -- Stress-testing Economic Resilience -- The Search for Organisational Agility -- Disaster Resilience: Where it all Comes Together -- Adapt or Die: Futureproofing the Twenty-first Century.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/9449225336<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1055263167<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Future proof : how to build resilience in an uncertain world<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1112064508<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.vlebooks.com\/vleweb\/product\/openreader?id=none&isbn=9780300244953<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=2219094<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5844752<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.jstor.org\/stable\/10.2307\/j.ctvmd862z<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.degruyter.com\/isbn\/9780300244953<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780300244953<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/dx.doi.org\/10.12987\/9780300244953<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1112064508<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
