Around the world, people and societies are at risk of being affected by
disasters, both natural and man-made. In the face of climate change
and human activity, the threat posed by unexpected disasters is likely
to increase in future. This book, the first of its kind in Hong Kong, offers
insights from experts in healthcare and higher education both locally

and further afield. Some of the authors have first-hand experience with
various elements of disaster management, through such events as the
2008 earthquake in Sichuan and the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as
emergency medical care for large-scale competitions including the
Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon.
Key learnings and recommendations are presented in three sections:
disaster management and reconstruction, including what we can learn
from past earthquakes; the importance of healthcare and emergency
medicine in disasters and community events; and the way forward, in
particular how technology and systems thinking can be used for
disaster mitigation. By shedding light onto future work in disaster
management and emergency medicine in Hong Kong and East Asia,
this book aims to contribute to community resilience in the region and
beyond. It will be useful for tertiary and postgraduate programmes,
teachers and academics, practitioners, healthcare providers,
policymakers, and community leaders.
