Abstract

This closing chapter draws together overall emerging points from the volume, having resonance with societal aspects of the wider series of which this is a part. It offers reflection and guidance for an expanding field of study built from the rationale outlined in the Introduction with summative comments influenced by the three chapter sections. It is concluded that dealing with hazards, risks, and disasters in society requires an understanding of cognition and behavior and would require a cultural shift for much of humankind. Although a definitive checklist of actions to be taken is beyond the realms of any one volume, previous learning and the insights that are on the whole empirically presented within this volume indicate processes that are required to progress for the better.
