The Department of Development and Sustainability would like to Congratulate Dr.Indrajit Pal, Associate Professor and Chair of Disaster Preparedness Mitigation and Management (DPMM) on his recent publications- Springer Tracts in Civil Engineering: Civil Engineering for Disaster Risk Reduction and Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering: Sustainable Cities and Resilience, and Resilient Infrastructure. These books are available in the AIT Library.
Civil Engineering for Disaster Risk Reduction
Sreevalsa Kolathayar, Indrajit Pal, Siau Chen Chian, Arpita Mondal
Link: ISBN 978-981-16-5311-7
The book is a comprehensive volume on multi-hazards and their management for a sustainable built environment. It focuses on the role of civil engineering in building disaster-resilient societies. This book brings together all diverse disciplines of civil engineering and related areas (for example, geotechnical engineering, water resources engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, environmental engineering, construction management, GIS, and remote sensing) towards a common goal of disaster resilience through an interdisciplinary approach. It contains methods and case studies focusing on civil engineering solutions to reduce disaster risk. The book contents are aligned in line with the priorities set by the UN-Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and UN-SDGs to promote a global culture of risk-awareness and disaster reduction. The book will be a useful comprehensive reference for disaster risk reduction beneficial for engineering students, teaching faculty, researchers, industry professionals, and policymakers.
Sustainable Cities and Resilience
Indrajit Pal, Sreevalsa Kolathayar
Select Proceedings of VCDRR 2021, ISBN 978-981-16-5542-5
This book presents the select proceedings of the Virtual Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (VCDRR 2021). It provides insights into urban resilience and sustainable infrastructure. All the chapters in this volume are segregated into five clusters, e.g., Resilient infrastructure in construction, Innovative construction interventions, Waste Management and Disaster Risk Reduction, Urban Development and Sustainability, and Cross-cutting issues. Various topics covered in this book are risk assessment, prevention, mitigation, preparedness and response, renewable energy, waste management, resilient cities, and environmental management. This book is a comprehensive volume on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and its management for a sustainable built environment. This book will be useful for the students, researchers, policymakers, and professionals working in the area of civil engineering, especially disaster management.
