  3. 3. Typical Scene of devastation in Developed & Developing Nation! Post Cyclone - India Post Super Cyclone-India Post Cyclone Sidr- New Orleans post Bangladesh Hurricane Katrina
  4. 4. SIMILARITIES IN THE VULNERABILITY PATTERN  In both these places havoc wrecked by nature was same.  It was the “vulnerable” population that was affected.  Both the places had the most socially & economically disadvantaged communities as well  Loss of Life, Property, sense of displacement
  5. 5. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE VULNERABILITY PATTERN • In USA the “Back-Up” system is good for recovery. For example: people have got back to their lives with state support. • In India, the “Back –System” is not only poor but close to being non-existent. For example: people devastated from the Gujarat earthquake have still not recovered.
  6. 6. CONVERGENCE Capacity Building Exchange of Of Community “Good Practices” Ex: CBDRM Involvement of Govt./Corporates/ UN Agencies/ NGOS’/ Consultants
  7. 7. Conclusion  Though there exists differences between the developed & developing nation in “response” patterns the “vulnerability” pattern are same!  To “BRIDGE THIS GAP” it is important to meet MDG Goal 8- “to develop a global partnership for development” and a build a culture of safety & preparedness at the global level for humanity at large.
