  • I think it is a low estimate with assumptions regarding the exact numbers of disaster related people. Also, drone need to be modify to keep close to the humanitarian action. No assessment has been done for the cost of resources like the human resources, fix and variable costs. $4 bn is just a fix envelop for the items.

  • I-DEFINITIONS AND ANALYSIS
  • a)General definitions
    • Strategy :
    • A set of tactics, consider the high strategy (politics) and low strategy (Policies). Also, a tactic can be
    • high or low. These are the operations in the supply chain management. Also, in some planning a lower level
    • of the strategy can be the top level of the tactic.
    • Scenario :
    • Production of rose tinted or apocalytic predictions (Ref.: Michel Godet, from anticipation to
    • action, A handbook of strategic prospective, UNESCO Publishing, p.58 and « the future is multiple and

  • As a rule, project management goals are to induce changes in organizations, and because changes deal with ressources, processes and ouputs. It would be nicer to understand these forces that are shaping the present environment in order to take a rational decision (manage with full rational controls). For instance, if these ressources are water in all their contexts, an expertise in water would help. Similarly, if it is a business activity, some knowledge of Market theories (Michael Porter,...) would help to master the dynamic of changes in a rational way.

  • A3-GENERALITIES
  • a)Project sources
  • b)Main business sources World Co : - Business: Japanese women’s apparel retailer World Co Ltd (« World ») - President, Hidezo Teri, believes in speed and responsiveness for his business -Championing the SPARC , the Super –Production- Apparel Retail –Consumer- Satisfaction -Start with new Brands and monitor them, then improve the production system , -Insure coordination with planning, production, development and marketing , and allows each store keeping units (SKU) to make better production: lead-times and volumes -Importance of cost in the space (Real Estate): influencing the retailer organization: independant – stand alone stores -, shops in fashion malls –grouping of stores in a building, or shops within Department stores . Stores are targeting different kind customers, implying various brands (40) - Lead-time for replenishment (from the order to the delivery: 2 weeks - Design, produce and ship new products to the retail stores within 6 weeks -Interesting point: WORLD produces on forecasted demands. The reference store for the Forecast is Obermeyer (OberMeyer forecast method) –forecasts based on previous season, then through adaption with P-D-C-A and also the annual meeting in Japan. (OberMeyer Vote meeting) - Dream project: cost cutting, reduction of inventory and the quality of the SPARC network [Ref.: Dr Schallembaum IIM MBA CNAM, Havard Business Cases, Operation Management Case Book]

  • e)Business source: CEMEX (dealing with changes: diversity & sustainability) CEMEX : 98 years old Mexican multinational, Ready Mix Concrete and Cement, (based in Monterrey), 53 Plants around the World (including USA,…, Phillipines) - Business characteristics: Cemex: concrete business asset intensive and of low efficiency with umpredictable demands - 8000 grades of mixed concretes and forward them to 6 regional mixing plants, each with its own fleet of trucks . - customer routinely changed ½ of their orders , sometimes only hours before delivery and it may be re-routed because of weather changes, trafic jams or problems with building permits, Cemex’phone lines were often jammed as customers, truckers and dispatchers tried to get orders strait… - Boss: Laurenzo, Zambrano grand son of the founder.1985 implement IT in the business From no technology to the use of a build in system to link trucks with GPS to monitor dispatchers for location, direction, speed of every vehicules. - Customers, distributors and suppliers can use internet to place orders directly, check Shipment delivery times, and review payement records without having to telephone A customer representative services (Source: Kenneth Laudon, Management Information System)
  • Note: What is humanitarian is looking like CEMEX dealing with customer uncertainties Criticisms on humanitarian actions for not being proactive, reacting to events, the lack of anticipatory mangement The world of hazard management like the CEMEX business is full Of sources of risks and uncertainties WAER project is a possible model of fresh water delivery to manage these sources of uncertainties to the supply of fresh water during the flood

  • b)Project flood communication DRINKING WATER SUPPLY AND FLOOD PLAN
  • Project description in non technical terms
    • (Personal description from what is known through the media attention
    • -probably, it is not too different from the real world of flood experiences)
    • When there is a flood, it can takes a long-time before the international
    • community reacts, when it should act to supply water to people at risk
    • of flood (for instance when an international assistance is possible).
    • Meanwhile, the death tolls increase. People dies not from the disaster
    • itself , but the aftermath of the disaster by drinking contaminated water.
    • Also, the queueing of refugees on roads (land, sea and air) is a media
    • attention and real with unexpected globalization movments where people
    • participation is very low.
    • It is a case for humanitarian actions. Specifically through the light of
    • UN policies to substitute faulty governments to supply assistance to their own citizens.
  • Description in non technical terms [From rejection factors  to the engineering needs]
      • Negative reasons
      • A lack of autonomy: in the community survival, but instead dependance and assistance
      • Due to the short term anticipation. Good flood plans should advocate for self-sufficiency,
    • reliance and independance. Not same causes imply same answers
      • Technical e.g. water trucking is disabled, infrastructures are out of order…
      • Political: conflicts, authorisations…
      • Legal proceedings: Orders (emergency evacuations, executive decret, Emergency
    • Alert Warnings…
      • Environmental: sand bags, walls are environmental uncompatible
      • Cultural: drones and water purifiers are technologies for everybody –developped or
    • emerging countries
      • Economy: drone: $30, pocket water purifier: $10
      • GDP: diseases and deaths reduce the country task force and revenues
      • International projects: in principle, some water project horizon lines are too long (it is
    • one option of the vicious cycle of the pover chain)
      • Displacement: increase of refugees during a disaster fleeing the flood zones
      • Urbanism: impervious surface and mass productions. Flat surfaces
  • Description of the project in non-technical terms I think, there is an analogy to be drawn with what François Careme, Programme Network and Energy Management Director at EDF-The French National Energy Company- when he said in Environment Research « Le Monde, Special Science », Nov-Dec 2009 p-41 the following points helping me to comment for debating of my project orientation, and, again by analogy. 1°-…«  Recours grandissant aux énergies renouvelables pourraient conduire à un accroissement des perturbations du réseau Électrique  »… Due to the fact that the wind flows are not continuous –wind is an intermediate energy, illimited but variable in flows- (I think it is correct, because networks may be compatible to a certain limit) 2 °-….also, the text adds …« Germany is number one in the world for the electricity generated from wind mills- Decentralized production units-, but supplies are often disrupted. There is great disavantadge, when the wind falls down, the electrical power supply would be annuled if the germans did not introduce a kind of compensation In the ways of more traditonal ways to produce electricity  »…(I think it is correct, we are never sure when the wind will stop blowing-there are still a solution with batteries to stock energy, I suppose) As I understood the text, german households proeminently –firstly- use electricity generated from soft supplies (not nuclear or oil electricity generated power supplies), then when there is a potential/real defiency in the soft supply sources, there are tops-up energy contributions by national more traditional centred energy firms -sourcing with hard energies. The delivery of electricity needs match an in-ward process- orientation from the peripherial drives –mission unit organizations eg households, firms..- supplying its own electrical energy, and afterward if households/firms lack of electricity, there is an external assistance call made for more traditional sources, this time, I suppose, in charge of the German Federal State companies to deliver from and above the insufficiences
  • Description of the project in non-technical terms 3°- The Programme Network and Energy Managing director at EDF added :  « … in France electricity network architecture are heading only one way, as well as power supply framed – I suppose EDF monopolistic (?) electricity state company, with all the good willing to advocate for decentralization cannot deliver on the promise of set a perfect network of self autonomous ways to produce electricity at decentralized scale levels – your own facility to produce your own electricity, with your own sources to my knowledge are still inexisting or not developped, today. One reason is what the Progamme Network and Energy Managing director had suggested in the text eg. the bottlenecks of past energy infrastructure options, which would render uneasy decentralized electricity production units –therefore keeping a more functional way to produce electricity in France (maybe not the case in Germany) The other reason is about expenditures raising from diversification of sources -from the mission units. Theret would be a Cost to pay for the policy energy diversification. The energy fragmentations with no correlation with people needs. And again, the french Electricity society may end-up with the need to another kind of concentration or centralization. My conclusion is , « I think, France is a small country in size, with a small population with an influence based on the use of technological prowesses to produce electricity generated from traditional forms of energy – the dominant way is Nuclear energy, which shaped the network infrastructure and development options, reversely for germany with another production option, which may be difficult to reverse because of the small size of the population, also. A centralized way to generate electricity matters for France –as a decentralized way for Germany. Now what direction for the future of electrical networks, when addressing large scale organizations with significant population sizes. In fact, as the Programme Network and Energy Managing Director at EDF is questionning, in « Le Monde »: …  «Can we introduce a large Scale decentralized production? » …
  • Description of the project in non-technical terms My project contribution tends to answer positively to the question of large scale organizations and I am taking to illustrate my debate on qualified flood organizations that have a long history of fighting floods. I have already described in the project paper (ref.: Wateter needs in towns and fields in disasater zones) the case of America, with FEMA-the US Fedal Emergency Management Assistance and the State of California flood organization. There is an obvious relationship between weather and hydrology services linked to the nature of the commerce of weather and hydrology. NOAA –National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration- is in charge of this service and NOAA is a branch of the US Federal Dept of trade. I felt, coming from the media attention –Katarina or Mexico gulf hurricane predictions-, emergency trends tend to be a rather centralized oriented way to solve flood issues under control of FEMA. The role model of the service and the Emergency infrastructures, options are probably attached to the particular characteristic of the population nature and the size, which FEMA is serving. Now, comparing to Holland or Bangladesh, which have different flood strategies, I would qualified more adaptative and decentralized. They helped me in a way to illustrate my flood model partly for the emergency rescue builders with a participation approach focus on decentralized forecast production units, using firstly basic local resources before applying to external assistance -as I felt more predictions need more acccess to data, in turn there is a need for more traditional investment in hard material in order to capture these software needs (for the forecast simulation) Instead - like Germany for electricity supply network (and also Bangladesh and/or Holland applying adaptation using Basic networking, I have fancied much more a model of flood fighting based on decentralized unit of forecast productions –first. I found these models more appropriate to international agenda and perhaps may avoid future bottlenecks in network Infrastructure –my viewpoint taking into account the experience of electricity supply network and energy source Diversification described in the text:  « Environment Research, Le Monde special science, Nov-Dec 2009.
  • c)Floodplan –including drinking water supply- and Health plan In principle, factors that favour diseases –germs- development are the hazards –physical, chemical and biological and their drivers: For instance, factors that can fuse germ multiplications are: -Water temperature, -Water pH and water contaminants -Germ types and behaviors (carriers and pests) -People hygiene and vaccines -People –including staffs- motivation and training -Architecture, design and urbanism of the environment -Health system performance (collectivity, private or hybrid) -Water physical appearance (cleanliness, turbidity, presence of soil) -Water flow speeds (speed up or slow down flows) -Water treatment and waste water treatment -Research & development on cross contaminations during floods -Price of medicaments and affordability during disasters -The hygiene laws, principles and guidelines and pervasions ....... - A full project Picture is about correcting all these Source of risks

  • h)Lab 7: Environmental significance of the 100 km boundary zone of water features 100 km boundary zones of water features are likely to be impacted more severely by pollutions. Aquifer/sub-surface waters can travel far away enough from their original sources with good soil facilitation Factors: infiltration capacity, structures, perviousness and soil surfaces. Floodwaters infiltrated into the land combines their pollutions with the ones carried by natural water courses during normal conditions. Loads of pollutants are: the soil unwanted materials, germs, others… Flood events are the most common disaster (with the highest predictability), still predictions are unreliable. For instance, if there is a strong rain, an earthquake, the municipality water supply disruption,…most places – except in places with serious flood indicators -- have no reliable flood plan and cannot control them. The pollution context in 100 km risk zone, add ambiguity to the cultural aspect of flood. For such reasons, the importance of good quality predictions has a higher significance in the 100 km . Physical Chemical Biologocal Types of Pollutions GS RADJOU
  • i)Lab 8: important remark on the 100 km (flood is good, flood is bad) Normally, the flood prone regions and floods are very relevant to the development of most country economies (GDP). In principle, the soil natural sedimention process due to flood run-off waters contain the natural ingredients for the soil fertilization. It is a crucial/trivial cultural agreement/ingredient for flood sediment inputs for small or large farms (Ref.: FAO, UNDP, WMO…). With the increase pressure of development drivers, pollutions with floods are complex and impacting traditional mode of productions. In the project, the flood water will never be as good as willing so, thus supply of fresh water sources are very likely to be contaminated by the fertilizers –and also, artificial pollutants- The rational assumption is water supply unfit for the human consumption during a flood. And, if there is no evidence based policies that secondary sources are well mitigated, all waters in the flood prone region are perillous to drink. The project business case is an alternative way to supply drinking water in emergency conditions. Thus, making the 100 km zonation irrelevant for drinking water.
  • II-PROJECT STRATEGY
  • a)Project strategy THE IDEA IS A LEVERAGE SYSTEM THAT SPEEDS UP AND INTRODUCE SOME SHORT-CUTS INTO THE SUPPLY OF FRESH WATER DURING EXTREM WEATHER/HYDROLOGY CONDITIONS LIKE A HURRICANE, FLOODS… Starting point of the strategy + Rare are the cases when you can move people outside their cities during a flood predicted time. (because lead-times are always uncertain –nearly, and emergency evacuations when started are never 100% successfull at completion). + The municipality water supply is disrupted and water trucking cannot go to deliver fresh water to citizen at risk of flood. +Harvesting water from wells or other water alternatives are impossible. + We have to realize than nobody can stay without drinking over 3 days. People would not stand alone and refrain drinking dirty water. Vision : World free of water poisoning during a flood. Statements : reduction of death tolls and maalria reduction in the aftermath of the flood. Development based on mission organizations. Missions : +More than one alternative to water trucking and emergency +Building green and the sustainable environment +facilitate the water flow through adaptative strategies +Use of modular scaffold to improve infrastructures

It is illustrated with lots examples in life: money, water…
  • b)People needs (2) + It is an engineering need : it is about the component one would need to ensure the project success. It is going beyond the 2 oz pocket water purifier only (single project). +In order to drink water. Users may need the water purifier--of course– but firstly, before drinking the water, one should ensure, the household is not drowning, for instance the flood sufferer has a senior house. It does not crumble with the flood flow. +The 2 oz Pocket Water Purifier is directing the project (cut people thirst within 72 hours of the flood arrival time and refraining people to drink dirty water within this period of time). + Also, how do you market the need …. It is the Portofolio project management that would answer this question in the WAER project. So, there are lots of business components –products and services- to satisfy fresh water supply needs. My favorite solutions are on next slide and they are composing the ultimate goal of the WAER project
  • Water needs in town and field during a flood. Engineering needs required : A- single project : drop of pocket water purifiers to cut people thirst in a safe way. B- Portofolio project : it may not be enough to ensure that people do get access to fresh water, WAER needs to contribute more than just drops to help: ensure people are safe ideally look after maturity of their houses (senior houses) and the presence of an MIS for communication purpose. Pocket water purifier drops still required during the emergency. c)The business case
  • d)The project goals Ensure : self-sufficience reliance and independance when facing flood adversities based on the sustainable strategies. Also, achievement of the MDG and the building of a new urbanism (the adaptation strategies and the mitigations) cooping with flood in the 21rst century.

  • Issues : What is the appropriate interval of time for 2 flood measurements? – Normally, the simulation of an hypothetical flood trip travel time between 2 detections allow the determination of the flood speed by the relation: x=vt , x being the trip distance travelled by the flood during the time (t). In principle, the distance x is unknown until, it has been measured (or simulated). In our case, it is known when the flood detectors are put in the flood zone for Monitoring purpose. In real works, the implementation of a distance indication with flood detectors preceeds the speed measurement and also, the time delay measurement between 2 detections that suceed. Note: Besides using technologies to record flood speeds, an experienced flood person --from the local environment presumably-- may be able to have a feeling for the flood speeds—as with various monitors, also-- and do the reverse operations to assess several flood parameters.— It is flood forecasting without technologies.

  • 1-Flood indicator for forecasts The flood Indicator is an appropriate technology and its coverage zones would help to scale-up flood detections that cannot be predicted by the software simulation modelings or the radar detections. Either because, there is no data captures: « I have considered there are more unknowns – uncertainties– than flood evidences/certainties or valid predictions due to the fact that the Earth planet is still empty with direct presence of humanes. or if increasing lead-times of predictions are WMO new goals to improve forecasts (Ref.: WMO conference in Costa Rica 2006), it implies additional investment in more data captures in order to scale-up the new coverage zones till today not covered, for instance the sea, swamps…other unhabited areas on Earth or the outer space. » These additional traditonal means are: vessels, aircrafts, sattelites,…weather stations and there are till today not being consider as sustainable.The software modeling successes the data captures and the new investment.
  • 2-Flood indicator for forecasts Today, more factors need to be taken into account to get eventually these flood forecasts right: weather, climate, hydrology, population growth, new urbanism, sustainable development, policies… However, my viewpoint is flood studies are a dependancy of the weather and climate studies. The importance -- various types-- of floods in the economy allow to think that flood forecasting should have an independant status from the weather forecasts. The weather forecats can play an important part in the prediction of the hurricane seasons--, but, flooding conditions can occur in places very loosely connected with the flood place. For, instance the flood in Sudan can are sourced from the rainy season in Ethiopia. Also, the fact that countries are sharing water basing, they order to develop its own methodology. Can flood also develop without the weather elements (?)
  • 3-Flood indicator for forecasts Anyway, being independant does not mean absence of collaboration. Flood hydrology development would always needs the weather forecast and an autonomous research actions. in this case the flood indicator is an appropriate technology, non-administrative, favouring intermediate technolgies, decentralization, use of local materials and assistance to complement existing system (WMO, IHO…(?)) and improvment of non technology flood forecasts

  • Lab 1: Project Flowchart The representative flowchart of the project for flood Forecasting and services --emergency preparedness and assistance are based on the WMO weather and hydrology service. It is an hybrid organization combining the WMO with a model of flood detection, responsiveness, leverage that is proactive and local base (before asking for external assistance). A flood detection mission unit with rapide reponse will help to reduce the lead-times between flood detections (predictions) and the intervention: preparedness-emergency and assistance.
  • Flow chart focuses on: 1-Understand the business environment of the flood detection activities and ouputs – forecasts--, the couplage of the weather and hydrology services, the importance of the uncovered flood zones --unscaled-up flood areas or prone regions on earth--, which carry the flood uncertainties and the disaster likelihoodness impacted by the flood. These are permanent risks for weather and hydrology service organizers/stakeholders, mainly today through the lens of global warming, raising waters, population growth, modern, urbanism, land planning,… 2- I supposedly emphasis the importance of dark zones/pools/ponds (refering to UN and other UN related organizations) for the increasing numbers of flood and severity situations –where flood controls are difficult if none or no controls at all. 3-The new opportunities of flood development systems offers to the business community new potential markets, a water finance for all by using appropriate and compact solutions that do not disconnect people and their environment. 4-These chart flows are conveying an information for better leveraging the flood forecast organization: the purpose of the WAER project.

  • Starting point for the project finance and how it serves the risk analysis What I want to show from my feelings and based on the analysis: the project is viable and which are these conditions if the business is to survive. 1°My feeling is water trucking is a nice way to deliver water during a flood « if the level of water is sufficiently low to allow tuck traffics on the innundated roads  »(Still I will have to have a look at the distance trip between the source of water supplying the trucks and the delivery place. What is the proportion of cost incurred on the whole water service) Problem identifications : 1a) Which level of water prevent the traffic and/or how to choose eventually the good truck to reverse the truck charge during flood and also to satisfy the sustainable development principle—more energies and less pollutions-- 1b) Also, could I anticipate these water level values through the forecast (prediction) before any moves for the water supply with drones. This would help to make an early choices for a water trucking alternatives –in the case the floodwater rises dangerously, and disable the water trucking. What is the risk for a water system to deliver water from aircraft drops of pocket water purifier?What are these risks?

  • Estimation 1 : Numbers or fraction of 1.5 litres in 10000 litres : 3,333.33 –or the number of persons able to drink for one day with water trucking or water purifier truck equivalent per one day.

Now if an emergency service wants to supply fresh water for 3,333 people. It would have to drop an equal amount of water purifiers e.g. 3,333.33 the same day.
  • Estimation 2 : If a pocket water purifier lasts 3 months, how many water purifiers are needed per equivalent for one truck volume of water per one day. +A 2 oz Pocket Water Purifier delivers during its life time –3 months– 135 litres of water (3 months x 30 days x 1.5 litre per day) The number of fractions of 135 litres in a water trucking with a water capacity of 10,000 litres are: 74 (10,000 water litres/ 135) It is also, the total of 2 oz Pocket Water Purifiers for 3 months for a community Survival with 74 member Conclusion: 10,000 litres of water, which is the delivery of one truck in a day can help a community of 74 persons at risk of flood to survive 3 months (assumption of water consumption of 1.5 litres per day). It is the equivalent of water. Capacity truck per day and 74 people drinking the same amount of water for 3 months: X 74=k 3(Y), K is a natural number with one truck capacity equivalent to 10,000 litres. The index 3 means for 3 months and 74equals 74 people

  • Lessons learnt from the Productivity analysis I-Productivity analysis Competitors of 2 oz Pocket Water Purifier drops from aircrafts to supply fresh water i.e. tap water, water trucking have a comparative advantage outside the flood zone due to the discounted prices of the litre of water: =>tap water: US 0.56 cts/litre, =>water trucking: US 0.86 cts/litre, =>water purifier: US 7.69 cts =>and bottled water: US 38.45 cts/litre. =>harvesting water : cost of infrastructures to protect water But during a flood experience supplying fresh water with taps and trucks are cancelled and bottled waters are remaining too expensive. --It is sending mixte signal for an air drop delivery instead of doing nothing or lately (or plastic bottled waters)-- The only alternative is water droning still cheaper than bottled water (I suppose if it has not been used yet it because it is innovative and the humanitarian aspects of drone are still under R & D and the little Gain, also. To reverse the charge on water droning would be to consider, it is a health plan (and not a pure business or add more Corporate Social Responsibility)—these are valid reasons. Physically, the water rescue is either no alternatives or the 2 oz pocket water purifier drops from aircrafts to supply safe water. Drones can flight during a hurricane.
  • Equipment total costs (Tc) : Fixed costs (Fc)* +Variable costs (Vc) Platform Civilian flood zone Protective Area Base 2oz Pocket Water Purifier Water supply system Vectors: drones with launchers -on a soil -on a boat -on a truck Supports Shopping only Variable costs
  • Cost distinctions Remark 1 : (*) As long as the number N (the number of 2 oz Pocket Water Purifier) is not execessive and Do not necessite an additional base to drop the excess of 2 oz Pocket Water Purifiers, the base and all infrastructures are consider as fixed costs for and during the incurred emergency mission. These costs incurred mainly during the preparedness and are related again to infrastructures, vectors and personal in salaries. The only parameter, which varied is the number of flood water sufferer equals to n (n is also equalled to N: assumption one water purifier per household The flood disaster database with number of household members and total population in the flood zone or density population in the inundated area is relevant to know the exact absolute value of water purifier to be dropped, plus an additional security number in order to reach a saturation capability e.g. all flood sufferers should be able to have access to one water purifier or more – specifically, the children and women--
  • Cost distinctions and relevant costs Remark2 : I think it is not necessary to assess them accurately now for the purpose of the Project. At this stage a rough guide should be to consider water droning fixed cost lower than water trucking fixed costs (Assumption on fixed costs (Fc)) Anyway, there is no alternative to failure of water trucking during a flood except than airdrop survival means and also the fact that a permanent platform in the assisted country seems cheaper than a truck or car carrying the drone launcher and equipment, at large it should not exceed the cost of a truck (in the case the drone launcher is carried by a vehicle). The drone launcher is preferable to be mobile – carried with vectors like a truck or a boat– as the likelyhood of flood can be difficult to detect in place and time. The car carrying the drone launcher goed beyond the mobility that is attached To the flood uncertainty (analogy with flood fighters or firefigters of the local fire station. Also, the cost of a unique item that serves once is relevant to the 1rst project operation and do not incurred Later in any new development for future emergency even if the same item is used. Once paid, they are paid once.

The revenues earned from the emergency situation is in fact a cost to the community. What is the reason for profit? $2 Vc (N)
  • Few considerations on the break-even points In principle, the real emergency should be able to deliver water, as soon as it has 1 customer, BEP =1, continuous variable: 0-1. The revenue equation is a strait line – only function of the number of flood sufferers – this value indeed indicates that the gap between profit and loss can be small and even smaller if (n): the number of people at risk of flood is small. Is it worth investing? Importance of the database and reporting to assess exactly the flood context and exact numbers of flood sufferers. Roles of household MIS, mobile phone, internet, flood detectors and the RFID transmittance,…for the real time flood event captures Forecasting and rapid response units of water purifier drops from small aircrafts.
  • Few considerations from the cost analysis Remarks: Some humanitarian actions are not validated because of these small numbers. Database starts with an important number of sufferers. It is important to reorganize world databases and improve the captures of data to describe exactly what happens during a flood in details: quality and quantity and not approximatetly. Also, the hydrology service should be autonomous from the weather service.
  • The break-even curve: the real one Fixed cost Total cost curve Variable cost Revenue curve Volume of activity $ 0 B.E.P. b Loss zone Profit zone
  • Break even point Here, BEP (b) is different than zero because of the relevant costs to get the revenue. I had opted firstly to temove them (the false break-even curve) for the debate as normally drones and water purifiers are considered to be sustainable alternatives and if infrastructures are to be built, in principle their small sizes reduce cost of investment. But is it worth investing for a profit –outside the humanitarian action ? One difference would remain in the operating costs: raw materials and labors. As the project develop the use of local materials and resources would be a priority. Also, in the case of drone launchers attached on a truck to give more mobility to the emergency rescue through this means – the flood occurence carries uncertaintie--, it is ultimately a real challenge to compare water droning based truck with water trucking and the winner. Both systems are vectors by trucks and the only parameters to differentiate the quality of alternatives would be (H-h) the water elevation over the truck water tolerance to flood elevation (h) and/or n: the number of people at risk and a reasonable capacity e.g. not enough building that would be worth investing into a drone project for the purpose of the humanitarian action --n also equals N: number of water purifiers. In this case the drone could be implemented with a basic base of assets (infrastructures) With the use of local resources and materials –to reduce costs even more.
  • Distinction between Break Even Curves The difference with the false curve is that I have considered only the purchase of 2 oz pocket water purifier was a relevant cost. Other costs like the preparedness: capacity building, acces base negotiation deals, costs of infrastructures: platforms, the network, the drone purchase occured once and are reused during several emergencies (Projects). Therefore there are just relevant once and not for future Flood event assistnce projects in the same country.. The BEP Occurs as soon as there is a flood and there is no minimum requirement for household numbers. If 1 person is requiring for help: BEP=0 a volume of activity for which Total cost equals total revenue. In fact this is fictious as the first profit is $2 Which is the profit revenue, which is in the 1rts water purifier sold (False break even curve). The real Break Even Curve considers various approximations: the cost of staffs, costs of contengcies, fuels….small costs. In this case the BEP is different that the « 0 » value All these approximations could be received in kind by assisted countries. In that case the False Break Even curve would be with an apparent simplicity linked with the fact that Total cost would be equals to revenue if $2 profit on each 2 oz pocket water purifier is reused for: training, flood development, other contingencies or miscellineous. This is by definition what makes the difference between a NGO and Non for profit organizations and a multinational. Today, with the introduction of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), global firms have an awarness about their responsibilities toward the communities they are serving.

  • Proportions for various beneficiaries
  • Water trucking high profile with various reserves
    • Water trucking break even points and load factors
    • High profile when H<h, because of the Volume of Activity dealt during the water rescue
    • 46 persons/20’. The price of water is low – US 0.86 cts (excluding transport, oil, maintenance, driver salaries…).
    • So benefits come from the volume, but bying a truck, paying for the drivers and transporting water from long distances in perillous countries can peak up costs easily. At the end, there are no benefit and the revenues are low (and operations risky ). Is it worth investing in water tucking with all the volume advantages, but also with adversitie?
    • High number of people at risk for emergency starts –in the database dealing with number of households
    • The flood elevation: H<h (can the truck deliver during the flood)
    • The distance to carry the water from sources to the flood zone
    • The use of oil or diesel as propelant is not sustainable
    • Costs of maintenance, new trucks, driver wages…
    • Risks:looting the truck, killing the rescuers, wheather conditions
    • Conclusion : Prices can escalate and prevent the rescuer to help.
    • One Positive point for water trucking (sus the volume)
    • The International community knows the return of such Humanitarian action (return on investment, ROI) And there is no surprise when the flood is low (H<h), there is a real benefit because of the volume 10,000 water litres for 3,333.33 people in one day or 74 people for 3 months
  • Water droning low profile but can deliver in worst conditions. Why ? Condition 1 : water trucking disability (as indicator) H (Flood water elevation) - h (elevation of the truck)>0 -assumption for the truck: value for h=50cm (small trucks) to 1 m (high elevated trucks) => H > 0.5 to 1m (flood elevation) . H – h >0 water droning can go (indicator 1) Condition 2 : water droning to be equivalent to water trucking during a flood should be able to deliver for 74 persons X 135 litres of water for 3 months. (which is equivalent of 1 truck per day with capacity of 10000 litres.) Note: if the truck was enabling during the flood, such volume of water per truck would allow 3,333.33 people to drink 1.5 liter of water per day. Water trucking is a volume activity, if working. Condition 3 : is it worth investing in such Water droning project. How much it would cost In infrastructure to implement. From now I have the Feeling that water droning should be reserved to special types of flood (with risk adverse communities, Communities with a good habitat –senior houses that do not crumble with the flood). Condition 4 (last) as establishing water droning On a permanent basis and an additional alternative to Water trucking outside important flood conditions, When H-h<0 need to makes some more break even Analysis regarding, investment, margin and security

  • Lessons learnt from the Break-even analysis (1) II-Break Even (Curve) analysis The delivery of safe water from an aircraft is not a risky experience . It is not a risky experience at condition to have a small load factor, which is the case with minimalistical infrastructure scenario assumptions. Tiny load factors can be significant in achieving the mission success by reducing the total cost for initial investment AND balancing water droning for small size communities. In theory, profit –the small earning- would be achieved by housholds numbers willing to use the service for their water needs. If numbers drop to 0. No profit is made and the company incurred no cost as long we stay within the above condition.
  • Lessons learnt from the Break-even analysis (2) The delivery of safe water from an aircraft is a risky experience . 2 extremes : a)Lots of investment for a small community: The preparadness investment and fixed costs attached to drone launchers (base, truck, boat..) can be permanent (highest risky assumption in the case of small commmunities is not the favoured solution). Explorations of various avenues: -Way to think about flood rescues by analogy with the firefighter brigade station in a civilian flood community Service –volunteering more or less paid contributions ? -Flood rescue relying entirely on private firms (and not international assistance) where the profit is not Garanteed. What will be these Private frm structures ? -Mix of hybrid organizations best suiting the community in flood prone zones (target of flood uncertainties). A real match between flood uncertainties and catering a flood answer –in the instant emergency. -New roles of NGOs, less governmental dependant and more privately orientate –with more or less government participation –a kind of flood democracy. Note: it is different that the consensus building at inter governmental level to bring the flood assistance to communities?
  • Lessons learnt from the Break-even analysis (3) b) Is it worth investing for a larger community where flood occurrences are well studied ? In this case, solutions have been brought by national governments in charge of the civilian protection in terms of disaster planning, the studies of the disasters and preventing mitigating the occurence, educating people, insurance policies, flood engineering works, people re-location, building flood architectures, hedge funding, also and etc. – All these precautionary measures belongs to the framework of the flood adaptation and mitigations of the UN Integrated Water/Flood Resource-IWRM/IFM) management policies and tools. Considering the case, one wonder how responsive can be the flood community to such package of deals and how peacemeal, it is still remaining ? Is it the role of the System Environmental Economical Accounting to Answer –SEEA- ?
  • Lessons learnt from the Break-even analysis (4) New exploration and how to answer? Water droning choice compare to other alternatives –if existing. -I suspect obstacles can be cheaper than the investment for trucks and/or other alternatives ). Also, NPV /rate of return for the project may not reach investor hurdle rate (of returns) but still, if the flood does not materialize these investment may not be lost and may not be difficult to bail out (Even if low). -After all, these ivestment are not so heavy: a drone cost $30 and a Pocket water purifier $10. Is it worth taking risk for a very little return (a part from taking risk to save people)? This answer is in the Humanitarian action, the faifth the world in one, the trust in the community of destiny, the environmental pressure of globalization- Would this had happened if the today globalization did not existed? I think, this question leaves a room for another debating about past courses of human history –energy history, migration history, reasons for Wars, technological choices, humans resitance to stress…and their goodness?
  • Lessons learnt from the Break-even analysis (5)
    • The only reasons to be engaged in a water droning system would be :
    • the change in heart of organization for flood sufferers,
    • Development of broadband technologies in mission organization (but not leaving room for cahotic
    • networks. A bit of coordination would be an added value, thus avoiding the formal/paper organization
    • with conflicting rules and a hierarchical/functional organization to cut costs –but is it really cutting cost
    • when salvation army of flood forecaster and forecast at the scale of the world, always need more
    • spending for materials and people. –How to insure that there is a goog coordination? Perhaps, the
    • equilibrium is a « de facto » balancing act due to the reality. Is it good to just let it running to pave
    • a way for flood sufferers. Tough job, also in:
    • improving the legislations,
    • flood civilians themselves like the idea of pocket water purifier drops from drone
    • instead of drinking contaminated water,
    • gouvernment themselves take in charge humanitarian drone projects,
    • interesting parties could be also philantropic organizations, and bankers for poor people.
    • Another way to lever the water droning is to reduce costs of infrastructures, increase the CSR in global
    • firms and also create a flood civilian society that go beyond what is doing firebrigade station or
    • intergovernmental organization. Like improvment of the democracy and governance.
