Abstract: 

Increasing incidence and intensity of natural disasters and climate change are having over-arching impacts on the environment. Sustainable development is being undermined. Ecological services and their indirect economic values are frequently omitted from assessments. Mainstreaming ecosystem concerns – both ecological and economical – and integrating them into disaster management is essential. This multi-volume manual attempts to provide background information and guidance for integrating environmental concerns into disaster management. Volume 3 presents summarised resource material that is useful for field practitioners. The material ranges from technical papers on biodiversity and economic valuation to the description of tools such as Rapid Environmental Impact Assessments (RES) and CRISTAL (for community-based risk assessment). It also discusses international principles and frameworks, and contains various guidelines.
