From the annual report's web page:
"Natural disasters are a fact of life. In recent years, earthquakes have shaken Japan, China, Indonesia and Haiti; flooding has swamped Pakistan and the Mississippi Delta; hurricanes have tested New Orleans and the U.S. Gulf Coast; and tornadoes have ripped through Alabama and Arkansas. Over the past five years, more than 13 million people have lost their home to a natural disaster.
"Housing cities after a disaster" highlights the urgent need for urban disaster planning and outlines how planning for permanence during rebuilding creates a more solid path to recovery."
