Armed conflict, drought, famine and other serious disasters create emergencies in which large numbers of people require urgent help. Engineering in Emergencies is the practical handbook for all relief workers involved in giving humanitarian assistance at such times. It provides critical information needed to implement an effective response in the aftermath of an emergency. The second edition has been completely revised and updated based on feedback from users in the field, including experience from cooler climates and European emergencies. It includes all the key features of the first edition, in particular the coverage of both technical topics such as water and sanitation, as well as managerial skills and personal effectiveness.
