In 2009 cyclone Aila hit the coast of Bangladesh with devastating effect. This exceptional resource looks at the causes, effects and management of that storm. Opening as the cyclone hits, it then goes on to show the immediate aftermath, and explores the social, economic and environmental impacts. It also provides examples of how NGOs and government agencies are working to reduce both the short and long term impacts of cyclones through better monitoring, prediction, preparation, disaster relief and poverty alleviation strategies. This is an amazing look at the causes of cyclones, featuring clear explanations and graphics that make complex concepts clear.
