Digital Bibliography #11: Technology’s Role in Disaster Mitigation
Tue, 06 Nov 2018 || By Muhammad Fakhri Abdurrahman

This bibliography is collected to highlight articles and journals that address how technologies are being used in disaster mitigation. Some of the articles showcase approaches taken by countries and international organizations such as the United Nations in mitigating a disaster. We hope that future writers or researchers on disaster mitigation and technology would be helped through this bibliography. Suggestions regarding the list can be sent to
