Measurements of the Causes and Consequences of Drought
This PhD thesis is a conjunction of four manuscripts and one published paper on the measurement of disasters. The central idea is that in order to study the causes and consequences of disasters, it is necessary to separate the concept into its components: hazard, exposure, vulnerability, resilience, response, impact, etc. With this in mind, the thesis will take the reader through 4 chapters on the measurement of causes and consequences of drought and one chapter on the role of technology in disaster relief coordination.
