    Abstract

    "Tipping Points in Humanitarian Crisis: From Hot Spots to Hot Systems", edited by Xiaomeng Shen , Thomas E. Downing and Mohamed Hamza, presents the outcomes of the 4th UNU-EHS/MRF Summer Academy on Social Vulnerability (26 July - 1 August 2009). The Academy participants developed the new "hot system approach" that analyses how the interplay of coupled social-ecological systems increases vulnerability or resilience.
