CUDRR+R Shares Reference Library for Urban Planning and Risk Research

CUDRR+R is happy to share a library catalog for urban planning and risk research. The library will serve as a reference catalog for students and researchers and will be updated on a regular basis to reflect the state of the art in disaster risk reduction, resilience building, and sustainable development. The library will also cover readings that provide a base for urban theory, including philosophy and architectural and urban history. While the initial upload is based on the physical library at CUDRR+R offices, it will be extended to digital references in the future.

The Library can be accessed by going on the “Publications” tab at the top of any page and then clicking the “Library” button, or by clicking here.
