Beyond Shelter author MARIE J. AQUILINO lectures in Portland & Seattle

As the rate of natural disasters increases, so does the need to help rebuild the communities and lives of those affected. Across the world, there is a huge effort to help these communities; trying to bridge the gap that separates short-term solutions from long-term sustainable recovery.
