Hazard management in Taiwan

Posted by Dave Petley

The Taipei Times has a very interesting editorial (17th April) that reflects upon hazard management in Taiwan.  It returns to the edtorial that I wrote for the paper last summer, based upon a posting that I put on this blog.  The need to take action to improvement the management of hazards in Taiwan is undeniable.  As we approach a new typhoon season the legacy of the continued inaction could be all too apparent again.
