Looking for taxonomies of disaster/emergency terminology

5 August, 2019

Dear All,

I am looking for taxonomies of disaster/emergency terminology. I have one from WHO and one from Evidence Aid, but are there any others I should be aware of?

Always grateful for your advice. With best wishes, from,
