Creating disaster resiliency: implementing regional coordination and national disaster prevention networks


This paper explains how a new disaster planning paradigm would improve on a number of basic weaknesses of the current framework. Issues addressed: (i) how the current planning process around disasters devotes a vast majority of resources to short-term relief and a comparatively small amount to building long-term community resiliency and recovery; (ii) If communities focused more on building resiliency, they would minimize the costs of disasters, and (iii) How today’s process features inadequate communication between the different levels of government and different business, government, and NGO groups. The paper encourages these different organizations to engage in collaborative thinking to help achieve more effective results.
