5 steps to disaster-ready, climate-resilient communities ("this is now a matter of survival")

5 steps to disaster-ready, climate-resilient communities ("this is now a matter of survival") | If the world were a village - global thoughts for global education | Scoop.it
Here are ways PH communities can better prepare for the next storm and adapt to possibly even more catastrophic climate change impacts

What does it take to be a climate-resilient and disaster-ready community?

1. Know about climate change and its impact

2. Assess vulnerabilities to reduce risks

3. Integrated approach to adaptation

- The more intact and balanced an ecosystem is, the more likely it can survive disasters. 

- Agriculture must be made climate-responsive.

- Water management entails being able to control the amount of water in a community. 

- The community's energy should not be completely reliant on fossil fuel and the national power grid. 

- Infrastructure of houses, public buildings, government offices, bridges and roads should be built to outlast storms and storm surges. 

- Food security can be achieved by stocking up on essential food like rice to be stored in time for a disaster.

4. Provide funding and equipment

5. Train the people

Title: 6 ways to be a better global citizen

Author: Matt Hershberger

Date: January 1, 2014

 

Main idea: It's about six ways to become a better global citizen when you're visiting another country, state, or city.

 

Summarize the article:

1. You should travel sustainably by traveling by bike, walking, kayaking, or sailing.

2. Learn about the items you buy by checking out the company and if it was ethically made.

3. Read or listen to things that are happening around the world by watching TV, going on the internet, and listening to podcasts.


Opinion/POV: Yes, there's an opinion/POV because the author is giving everybody his tips on how to be a better global citizen. His tips are different from the rest of the world's.


Question: I don't have a question for the article.


Is this article important to science? Why?

I think it is important to science because if you learn about the other countries and the events that take place, you could be informed about new discoveries, research, etc.

Russia suffered the most casualtiesof any country involved during WWII.  Often with mass graves it is impossible to verify the people however these soldiers would have some form of ID on them.  Why do you think so many people are volunteering their time and money to bury these soldiers?

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 16, 7:47 PM

World war two was not all that long ago in the grand scheme of things; it was the first war that was "fully captures on film and there are still some veterans alive today (although thier numbers are dwindelling. I cannot believe something this massive could go unnoted for a half century. I guess this just goes to schow the true scale of the largest war ever fought.

Nick Lesley's comment, May 17, 10:08 AM
Russia dealt with alot of suffering after WW2, with all the deaths and what not.... so they had a ton of burying to do.

It’s not enough to be better informed. We have to stop thinking of education as a zero-sum game and start collaborating across borders if we want to improve our collective performance. Different contexts inspire new ways of thinking and solving problems. We can learn from what successful classrooms, schools and school systems in other countries are doing well and innovate on their approaches to meet the needs of our own communities.
