Mitigation of Dangers from Natural and Anthropogenic HazardsConflicts/Wars: Human-Driven Events That Injure/Kill People and Damage/Destroy Property

Mitigation of Dangers from Natural and Anthropogenic Hazards: Conflicts/Wars: Human-Driven Events... [The world in 2014 was exposed to many conflicts/insurrections/wars (37) that continue in 2016 with people being displaced, injured and killed, property and infrastructure damaged and destroyed. Cumulatively these wars/conflicts and terrorism that accompanies them are at a scale of major natural and/or anthropogenic hazards that kill thousands, injure tens of thousands, and displace hundreds of thousands to millions from their homes or from their nations. This is happening around the globe such as in Ukraine in Eastern Europe; in Libya, Nigeria, Mali, and Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa; in Afghanistan in Asia; and in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, in the Middle East, to mention a few. Conflicts/wars kill civilians used as human shields and listed as collateral deaths in on the ground combat or by rockets, artillery shells, and drone/aerial bombing. This is in addition to the deaths of combatants and suicide bombers and their victims. Mitigation can only be found in peace but at this time on our planet, peace does not seem within reach for many of these “anthropogenic” hazards driven by politics, economics, inbred hate, and some in the name of ethnicity or religion.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[The world in 2014 was exposed to many conflicts/insurrections/wars (37) that continue in 2016 with people being displaced, injured and killed, property and infrastructure damaged and destroyed. Cumulatively these wars/conflicts and terrorism that accompanies them are at a scale of major natural and/or anthropogenic hazards that kill thousands, injure tens of thousands, and displace hundreds of thousands to millions from their homes or from their nations. This is happening around the globe such as in Ukraine in Eastern Europe; in Libya, Nigeria, Mali, and Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa; in Afghanistan in Asia; and in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, in the Middle East, to mention a few. Conflicts/wars kill civilians used as human shields and listed as collateral deaths in on the ground combat or by rockets, artillery shells, and drone/aerial bombing. This is in addition to the deaths of combatants and suicide bombers and their victims. Mitigation can only be found in peace but at this time on our planet, peace does not seem within reach for many of these “anthropogenic” hazards driven by politics, economics, inbred hate, and some in the name of ethnicity or religion.]
