About the Book

Human Ecology and Disaster Management have emerged as significant domains for social work and the last two decades have witnessed an intense engagement of social work academicians and practitioners with both of them. Their inclusion in the syllabi of all the major schools of social work highlights the contemporary relevance of these two fields to social work practice, and the immense potential that they proffer by way of employment opportunities to social work graduates.

This book brings together the experiences of social work academicians and field practitioners working on themes encompassed within these realms. By adding to the theoretical understanding of the issues of disaster management, climate change and human ecology from the perspective of social work, the book shall be of interest to social work academicians, practitioners and research scholars. The experiences and practice models suggested herein shall enrich the knowledge of the professionals in the field. The book shall also assist the students of social work to comprehend the relevant concepts and establish meaningful engagement with practice.
