Great search that we appreciate very much.this is now an established term with its own Wikipedia page that includes a guide to conferences and other resources, so here we will focus only on the culture of catastrophe and how stupid societies choose to turn otherwise manageable disasters into life-altering catastrophes.

There are three sub-sets we would recommend for consideration.

1)  Process of decision-making.  The first link talks about what happens when you fail to plan, react, or respond.

2)  Earth Science and the political war on science

3)  Empire and the global class war pitting dictators and their arms merchants and banks against the public

See the reviews, and then the actual books; below cover the first category only, use the Reviews Menu to browse such categories as Disaster Relief (16); Empire, Sorrows, Hubris, Blowback (146); Environment (Problems) (55); Environment (Solutions) (76); Power (Pathologies & Utilization) (94); True Cost & Toxicity (29); Truth & Reconciliation (42); Values, Ethics, Sustainable Evolution (142); Voices Lost (Indigenous, Gender, Poor, Marginalized) (49).  Virtually every entry within this web site focuses on Information Operations (IO) and Integrity as the means of avoiding disasters while creating a prosperous world at peace.
