Title

Discussion of "Multiobjective Optimization of Postdisaster Reconstruction Processes for Ensuring Long-Term Socioeconomic Benefits" by Pedram Ghannad, Yong-Cheol Lee, Carol J. Friedland, Jin Ouk Choi, and Eunhwa Yang

Abstract

The true value -- and actually, the real beauty -- of research lies in its ability to build on previous and ongoing efforts to advance the body of knowledge in domains of interest. To this end, and realizing the growing number of natural hazards, the area of sustainable disaster recovery has been attracting many valuable research efforts. Among multiple and diverse scholarly techniques that have been used in this fertile area, the discussers highlight agent-based modeling (ABM) as well as genetic algorithms (GAs) because of their technical proximity, which allows mutual integration and advancement on the methodological side, and thus the advancement of sustainable disaster recovery.
