LEARNING FROM GLOBAL DISASTER LABORATORIES PROVIDES A FRAMEWORK FOR GLOBAL DIALOGUE THAT IS THE FIRST STEP ON THE ROAD TO RESILIENT COMMUNITIES. A Framework For A Comprehensive, Inter-Disciplinary Dialogue On 21st Century Disasters And Disaster Resilience. A Disaster Is The Set Of Failures That Occur When The Continuums Of: 1)  People, 2) Community (I.E., A Set Of Habitats, Livelihoods, And Social Constructs), And 3) Recurring Events (E.G., Floods, Earthquakes) Intersect At A Point In Space And Time, When And Where The People And Community Are Not Ready. Intersection Of These Continuums Is Inevitable. Some Intersections Will Cause A Disaster, And Some Won’t. Each Community Must Be Ready For The Inevitable Intersection That Will Challenge Its State Of Readiness. Best Policies And Practices: Create, Adjust, And Realign Programs, Partners And People Until You Have Created The Kinds Of Turning Points Needed For Moving Towards Disaster Resilience. Presentation courtesy of Dr. Walter Hays, Global Alliance for Disaster Reduction

Transcript

  • 1. LEARNING FROM GLOBAL DISASTER LABORATORIES A THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK
  • 2. A FRAMEWORK FOR A COMPREHENSIVE, INTER- DISCIPLINARY DIALOGUE ON 21ST CENTURY DISASTERS AND DISASTER RESILIENCE
  • 3. 1. SCOPE FROM VULNERABLE CONTINUUMS TO A DISASTER TO DISASTER RESILIENT COMMUNITIES THROUGH IMPLEMENTATION OF “THE BEST POLICIES AND BEST PRACTICES” OF DISASTER RESILIENCE
  • 4. A DISASTER is --- --- the set of failures that occur when the continuums of: 1) people, 2) community (i.e., a set of habitats, livelihoods, and social constructs), and 3) recurring events (e.g., floods, earthquakes, ...,) intersect at a point in space and time, when and where the people and community are not ready.
  • 5. THE DYNAMIC CONTINUUMS • PEOPLE ( 7 Billion and counting) • COMMUNITIES • RECURRING EVENTS (AKA Natural Hazards), which are proof of a DYNAMIC EARTH)
  • 6. INTERSECTION OF THESE CONTINUUMS IS INEVITABLE SOME INTERSECTIONS WILL CAUSE A DISASTER, AND SOME WON’T
  • 7. EACH COMMUNITY MUST BE READY FOR THE INEVITABLE INTERSECTION THAT WILL CHALLENGE ITS STATE OF READINESS
  • 8. YOUR COMMUNITYDATA BASES AND INFORMATION HAZARDS: GROUND SHAKING GROUND FAILURE SURFACE FAULTING TECTONIC DEFORMATION TSUNAMI RUN UP AFTERSHOCKS •FLOODS •SEVERE WIND STORMS •EARTHQUAKES …ETC A DISASTER CAUSES FAILURES IN POLICIES FAILURES IN PRACTICES COUNTER MEASURES • BEST POLICIES •BEST PRACTICES DISASTER RESILIENCE
  • 9. PEOPLE = INNOVATION 200 NATIONS AND 7+ BILLION PEOPLE NORTH AMERICA CARIBBEAN BASIN SUB-SAHARA AFRICA MEDITER- RANEAN ISLAND NATIONS ASIA SOUTH AMERICA EUROPE
  • 10. LIKE AN INFINITE SERIES: A CONTINUUM OF INNOVATION NEVER ENDS
  • 11. LIKE A CHAIN: A CONTINUUM HAS WEAK LINKS TO IMPROVE
  • 12. FOUR UNIVERSAL WEAK-LINKS • IGNORANCE • APATHY • DISCIPLINARY BOUNDARIES • LACK OF POLITICAL WILL
  • 13. THE PEOPLE CONTINUUM • 7 + BILLION (DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD)
  • 14. THE COMMUNITY CONTINUUM: (SOCIAL CONSTRUCTS TO BENEFIT THE PEOPLE) • GOVERNMENT • DWELLINGS • SCHOOLS • HEALTH CARE FACILITIES • BUSINESSES • INFRA- STRUCTURE • ETC
  • 15. THE RECURRING - EVENTS CONTINUUM • FLOODS • SEVERE WINDSTORMS • EARTHQUAKES • DROUGHTS • VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS • ETC.
  • 16. EXAMPLE OF A DISASTER
  • 17. RECURRING FLOODING Interactions of Planet Earth’s sun, atmosphere, litho- sphere, hydro- sphere, and biosphere cause: Floods.
  • 18. INTERACTIONS OF EARTH’S CORE, MANTLE, ASTHENOSPHERE, AND LITHOSPHERE, CAUSE RECURRING EARTHQUAKES
  • 19. HAITI EARTHQUAKE JANUARY 12, 2010
  • 20. INTERACTIONS OF THE CONTINENTAL LITHOSPHERE WITH THE OCEANIC LITHOSPHERE AND THE HYDROSPHERE CAUSE RECURRING TSUNAMIS
  • 21. TSUNAMI: JAPAN MARCH 12, 2011
  • 22. TSUNAMI: OFFSHORE INDONESIA DEC. 26, 2004
  • 23. RECURRING SEVERE WINDSTORMS: HURRICANES, TYPHOONS, CYCLONES INTERACTIONS OF THE SUN, ATMOSPHERE, HYDROSPHERE, TROPOSPHERE, AND LITHOSPHERE
  • 24. ATLANTIC BASIN TROPICAL STORMS AND HURRICANES: 2010 • Alex (H) June 21 • Bonnie July 27 • Colin Aug 3 • Danielle (H) Aug 21 • Earl (H) Aug.29 • Fiona Aug 30
  • 25. RECURRING VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS: INTERACTIONS OF THE CORE, MANTLE, LITHOSPHERE, AND ATMOSPHERE
  • 26. VOLCANIC ERUPTION: ICELAND APRIL 14, 2010
  • 27. RECURRING DROUGHT EPISODES Planet Earth’s atmospheric- oceanic- lithospheric interactions cause: Droughts
  • 28. WHEN AN INTERSECTION OCCURS, WILL A DISASTER OCCUR? THE CONDITIONAL PROBABILITY IS “YES” IF THE PEOPLE AND THE COMMUNITY ARE NOT READY PEOPLE COMMUNITY EVENTS P T S O CP
  • 29. INCREASED DEMANDS ON COMMUNITY LIVING WITH DISASTER RISK DECREASED CAPABILITIES OF COMMUNITY
  • 30. LIVING WITH DISASTER RESILIENCE DEMANDS ON COMMUNITY NO DISASTER THIS TIME CAPABILITIES OF COMMUNITY
  • 31. TURNING POINTS FOR DISASTER RESILIENCE EDUCATION: PENETRATE SOCIETY IGNORANCE TO ENLIGHTENMENT APATHY TO EMPOWERMENT BOUNDARIES TO NETWORKS ENABLEMENT OF POLITICAL WILL BUILDING EQUITY AND PENETRATING SOCIETY
  • 32. 1. DISASTER RESILIENCE POLICIES --- ---ARE LIKE THE SYSTEM - ANALYSIS PROCEDURES THAT FOUR BLIND PEOPLE WOULD USE TO DESCRIBE AN ELEPHANT
  • 33. 2. DISASTER RESILIENCE POLICIES MUST CLOSE PRIOR KNOWLEDGE DIVIDES AND GAPS, AND IDENTIFY WEAK LINKS IN THE PEOPLE/COMMUNITY CONTINUUMS
  • 34. CURRENT KNOWLEDGE IS DEFINED BY ANECTDOTAL, EMPIRICAL, LINEAR, NON-LINEAR, STATISTICAL, FUZZY, PROBABILISTIC, . . . AND THEORETICAL MODELS HAVING DIVIDES, GAPS, AND UNCERTAINTIES
  • 35. KNOWLEDGE DIVIDES DISCONTINUITIES in space, and time of the available knowledge BETWEEN organizations, disciplines, and people will always create uncertainties in choices and differences in capability to achieve disaster resilience.
  • 36. KNOWLEDGE GAPS DISCONTINUITIES in space, and time WITHIN organizations, disciplines, or individuals that create uncertainties and slow progress towards disaster resilience.
  • 37. STRENGTHENING WEAK LINKS BENEFITS EVERYONE IMPROVES PREPAREDNESS IMPROVES PROTECTION IMPROVES EM RESPONSEE IMPROVES RECOVERY DISASTER RESILIENCE
  • 38. 3. FROM A DISASTER TO DISASTER RESILIENCE A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF PAST DISASTERS LEADS TO “COUNTER MEASURES” THAT PREVENT RECURRENCES
  • 39. DISASTER RESILIENCE POLICIES Design and Implementation of policies and practices: a) to INCREASE CAPACITY of the PEOPLE, and b) to ELIMINATE VULNERABILITIES in the COMMUNITY.
  • 40. STOP INCREASING COMMUNITY VULNERABILITY
  • 41. WHEN THE DIALOGUE IS ON THE CONTINUUMS WE CARE ABOUT, WE ALMOST NEVER LEAVE AYTHING TO CHANCE
  • 42. “BEST POLICIES AND PRACTICES” • PROTECTION (BUILD TO WITHSTAND) • PREPAREDNESS (BE READY FOR ALL POSSIBILITIES)
  • 43. “BEST POLICIES AND PRACTICES” • EMERGENCY RESPONSE • (ACTIONS TO [PROTECT PEOPLE AND PROPERTY) • DISASTER RECOVERY (RESTORING COMMUNITY SYSTEMS TO NORMAL AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE)
  • 44. READINESS FOR A POSSIBLE DISASTER “BEST POLICIES AND PRACTICES” ACADEMIA FUNCTIONAL NETWORKING CHANNELS INFORMATION NETWORKING CHANNELS ORGANIZATION NETWORKING CHANNELS NO DISASTERS COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS Stratec Consulting
  • 45. PILLARS OF DISASTER RESILIENCE Anticipatory Preparedness Adoption and Implementation of a Modern Engineering Building Codes & Standards Timely Early Warning and Evacuation Timely Emergency Response (including Emergency Medical Services) Cost-Effective Recovery/Reconstruction
  • 46. COMMUNITIES DATA BASES AND INFORMATION HAZARDS: GROUND SHAKING GROUND FAILURE SURFACE FAULTING TECTONIC DEFORMATION TSUNAMI RUN UP AFTERSHOCKS • TYPHOON HAZARDS •INVENTORY •VULNERABILITY •LOCATION TYPHOON RISK RISK ACCEPTABLE RISK UNACCEPTABLE RISK TYPHOON DISASTER RESILIENCE •PREPAREDNESS •PROTECTION •FORECASTS/SCENARIOS •EMERGENCY RESPONSE •RECOVERY and RECONSTRUCTION POLICY OPTIONS
  • 47. THE CHALLENGE: BEST POLICIES AND PRACTICES: CREATE, ADJUST, AND REALIGN PROGRAMS, PARTNERS AND PEOPLE UNTIL YOU HAVE CREATED THE KINDS OF TURNING POINTS NEEDED FOR MOVING TOWARDS DISASTER RESILIENCE
