Disaster resilience and community safety

order

2NDOPTION FOR Task 1:

There is a small literature critiquing the limitations of the use of ‘resilience’ in the disaster setting. (Section D)

What do you see as the strengths and weaknesses of use of ‘resilience’ in the disaster setting?

Section D:

 Challenge: Are disasters symptoms of failed sustainable development?
o J Sachs video
The Public Lecture by Prof Jeffry Sachs given in Melbourne 3 weeks ago is now available on U-Tube (it’s very big!):

I commend this lecture to your consideration.
It lasts 1 and a half hours but will challenge your thinking about disasters of the future.
Prof Sachs argues through the sustainable development lens but there are many applications to the disaster domain.
It is of particular relevance to those of you with interests and activity in the development field.

 Daryl Taylor’s report
Towards Place-Based and Community-Led Disaster Preparedness, Responsiveness, Recovery and Renewal – Cross-Sectoral Conversations about Innovations and struggles, Learnings and Changes in the aftermath of the February 7 2009 Black Saturday Firestorm.
