The U.N. International Strategy for Disaster Reduction has started a new bibliographic compilation series entitled ISDR-BIBLIO. Much like CRID’s Biblio-des series, each new edition will be dedicated to a specific hazard or aspect of disaster reduction. The first edition is devoted to tsunamis, in commemoration of the earthquake of December 2004 that triggered a devastating tsunami in the Indian Ocean, causing the death of almost 300,000 people and extensive damage in many countries. Included in the catalogue are descriptions of major academic, technical and scientific publications on tsunamis, reports produced by U.N. agencies, as well as audiovisual material on the subject. Future editions of ISDR-BIBLIO will feature material related to the theme of the World Disaster Reduction Campaign or other specific requests.
