Sažetak
The book entitled Flood Risk and Social Justice: From Quantitative to Qualitative Flood Risk Assessment and Mitigation is part of a series of books on Urban Hydroinformatics published by IWA Publishing. This book introduces a novel and modern approach for dealing with floods and flood-related disasters which have been increasing ever more rapidly throughout the world. By far the greatest toll from floods and flood-related disasters is in the so-called ‘developing’ world where the resources for dealing with such problems are either inadequate or non-existent. This book is a direct response to these and some other issues as an initiative to promote a socially just approach to the problems of flood risk. The primary aim of the book, which the authors have undoubtedly achieved, has been to fill the gap that currently exists in both literature and practice. The current literature treats the problem of flood risk from either a quantitative or a qualitative point of view. The quantitative point of view is based on modern science generally, as it uses ordering, numbering, counting and computing as these are related to the material world. The qualitative point of view, however, refers to those other aspects which have not been sufficiently analysed and have consequently been even less understood within the present context. The authors have undoubtedly made significant and original contribution in this respect by bringing a new way of thinking and a new paradigm which combines quantities and qualities.
