and proposes actions to create resilience in the country's main economic sectors, including agriculture and industry.
The processes applied at recent disasters such as the 19S earthquake and their results are used as case studies, identifying possibilities for further improvement. The book also describes new trends for Mexico due to climate change and makes suggestions for mitigating future disasters.
The proposals are also replicable to other highly populated societies with similar socio-economic structures.
