Environmental Assessment and Evaluation of Natural Disaster Risk and Mitigation in Freetown Report.

Between September and December 2017, participants in the ESD MSc practice module developed six policy briefs that together offer a comprehensive city-wide analysis of how different hazards converge on the reproduction of risk accumulation cycles.
