Humanitarian Civil Engineering demonstrates the pivotal role of civil engineering in tackling global humanitarian challenges. It identifies what a humanitarian engineer does and offers practices that are tangible to ensure safe engineering. It combines concepts and tools traditionally used by practitioners and development agencies with civil engineering practices, project management and systems thinking. When combined, these interdisciplinary practices offer all civil engineers’ better methods to manage the difficulties inherent in community development projects. This book allows you to understand the significance of humanitarian civil engineering and how to develop sustainable solutions that integrate social, environmental, cultural, and economic systems.
 
Combining theory and practice with case studies from humanitarian projects, it covers a wide range of topics including

  • how to deliver humanitarian engineering aid
  • resilient and safe settlements
  • development infrastructure
  • environmental impact mitigation
  • necessary skillsets and engineering competencies.
Humanitarian Civil Engineering is of particular benefit to engineers in practice, charity workers, NGOs, development agency staff and students interested in delivering humanitarian engineering solutions and development projects.

Georgia Kremmyda is Professor, Director of Studies in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Deputy Head of Teaching within the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick, UK.
