WISNER, B.; ADAMS, J. (2002): Environmental Health in Emergencies and Disasters. A Practical Guide. Geneva: World Health Organization (WHO). URL [Accessed: 20.03.2012].

This new book deals not only with emergency response, but also with measures designed to reduce the impact of disasters on environmental health infrastructure, such as water supply and sanitation facilities. It also aims to strengthen the ability of people to withstand the disruption of their accustomed infrastructure and systems for environmental health (e.g. shelter, water supply, sanitation, vector control etc.) and to recover rapidly.
