  • Do we need/have a short term community slide?
  • Phase 1: Community center/ Storm shelter In non-emergent situation, serves as a community center, office space for local leaders and storage facility In emergent situation, serves as temporary housing, food distribution, town hall Phase 2: Work with NGOs to develop durable Supplement NGO funding for temporary shelters to instead build long term durable housing Phase 3: Focusing on training for maintenance and repair for local Working with government to expedite the land tenure process In the meantime we can do land leasing process
  • Risk reduction of cyclone damage (wind and water) Goal: By using plants as a natural barrier Stricter deforestation laws Examples: Shrubs and trees that are able to grow in brackish water Native plants grow best there Trees Coconut and Mangrove: can get food from both Sabal palmeto trees: good for growing along roads because don’t take up much space One group mapped out 125 km of coastal barriers of 5,000 trees Shrubs Grasses: Pearl millet (Bahra), does not need replanting and grows quick
  • In water.. How about now we teach how to construct their own rain barrels? Arsenic water filters Latrines One per 20people/4 families Distance from house needs to be between 6 and 15 meters Drainage system in place that locals know how to use and fix Kits ($) for making them and upkeeping them Fenced in for women’s privacy 1 or 2 latrines per sector so that families are responsible for cleaning them Periphery of village Dimensions: Build on a platform Latrines: 2 feet flood level Wells tube well bases 3-4 feet above ground) Trained caretakers for routine repair and maintenance Emergency wells dug 30-40 meters (4-5 men) can make 5 wells per week Water tested for arsenic free Think ahead and store water!!!!!!!!!! Tank should contain enough 15L per person per day 15 to 20 feet away from nearest latrine 10 to 15 meters deep and needs a filter
  • Experts do a subjective look at the situation Talking to people, discussion, focus groups Quantifiable ways of looking at it Mangrove Chickens How many CSVs have been trained How many people have been trained/practiced/drills Triangulate Quantifiable outcomes Evaluation post event Have a baseline from previous disaster, how things went/how went wrong, pre and post intervention Use UN metrics Challenges: indirect culture and people might say things to say, so beware of how you frame questions so people can feel comfortable saying yes
