  1. 1. Basic Concepts andBasic Concepts and TerminologiesTerminologies in Disaster Managementin Disaster Management Adopted from 8th EVRC Course Held in Feb 2009 in Bangkok
  2. 2. Basic Definitions & Terms LearningLearning ObjectivesObjectives At the end of this session, you should be able to: Define disaster,hazard, risk, elements at risk, vulnerability, capacity, response, relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction, development, mitigation, preparedness and prevention
  3. 3. HAZARDHAZARD Phenomenon or situation, which has the potential to cause disruption or damage to people, their property, their services and their environment There is a potential for occurrence of an event
  4. 4. DISASTERDISASTER The serious disruption of the functioning of society, causing widespread human, material or environmental losses, which exceed the ability of the affected people to cope using their own resources. An event, either man-made or natural, sudden or progressive, causing widespread human, material or environmental losses
  5. 5. VulnerabilityVulnerability Is a condition or sets of conditions that reduces people’s ability to prepare for, withstand or respond to a hazard
  6. 6. CapacityCapacity Those positive condition or abilities which increase a community’s ability to deal with hazards.
  7. 7. The probability that a community’s structure or geographic area is to be damaged or disrupted by the impact of a particular hazard, on account of their nature, construction, and proximity to a hazardous area. RiskRisk

  10. 10. Elements at RiskElements at Risk Exposed Elements Persons, buildings, crops or other such like societal components exposed to known hazard, which are likely to be adversely affected by the impact of the hazard.

  12. 12. ResponseResponse Actions taken immediately following the impact of a disaster when exceptional measures are required to meet the basic needs of the survivors.
  13. 13. ReliefRelief Measures that are required in search and rescue of survivors, as well to meet the basic needs for shelter, water, food and health care.
  14. 14. What is difference between 1. Recovery 2. Rehabilitation 3. Reconstruction

  20. 20. ReconstructionReconstruction Permanent measures to repair or replace damaged dwellings and infrastructure and to set the economy back on course.
  21. 21. DevelopmentDevelopment Sustained efforts intended to improve or maintain the social and economic well-being of a community
  22. 22. PreventionPrevention Measures taken to avert a disaster from occurring, if possible (to impede a hazard so that it does not have any harmful effects).
  23. 23. MitigationMitigation Measures taken prior to the impact of a disaster to minimize its effects (sometimes referred to as structural and non-structural measures).
  24. 24. PreparednessPreparedness Measures taken in anticipation of a disaster to ensure that appropriate and effective actions are taken in the aftermath.
