From the Tsunami of 2005 to Hurricane Katrina to earthquakes and floods in Haiti and Pakistan, it is impossible to ignore that the everyday injustices that we allow in our societies have devastating impacts on those people least able to bear them. How we live in our cities, physically and socially, has a great impact on our ability to recover from disasters of all kinds.
