Policy Brief – Policy Implications for Managing Disasters for Better Protection of People with Non-communicable Diseases in Hong Kong | HKJCDPRI

Policy Brief – Policy Implications for Managing Disasters for Better Protection of People with Non-communicable Diseases in Hong Kong | HKJCDPRI | Ufficio RIA 2.0 | Scoop.it
Between 2005 and 2014, disasters have caused total damage of US$1.4 trillion worldwide, with 1.7 billion people affected and 0.7 million killed. With climate change, urbanization, environmental degradation and poverty, the world has been experiencing disasters at a higher frequency and intensity. To be effective, disaster management strategy must be able to meet the health needs of the affected population. With non-communicable diseases (NCDs) now being the major disease burden and leading causes of death worldwide, the traditional health focus of humanitarian response on acute conditions is no longer sufficient to address population health needs in disaster and emergency context.

The Power of Community: Relationships and Resilience in the Midst of Disaster

The Power of Community: Relationships and Resilience in the Midst of Disaster | Ufficio RIA 2.0 | Scoop.it
PECES exemplifies how everything connects to everything else. The relationships are the enabling and linking mechanisms: the understanding of who is in the community, who needs extra support, and what matters most. That native understanding of the place you’re in is critical in relief. The dynamics matter—and it’ll matter in the rebuilding.

Policy Brief - Improving Urban Health System Disaster Preparedness and Response in Hong Kong - Lessons from Complex Disasters | HKJCDPRI | Ufficio RIA 2.0 | Scoop.it
The increasing frequency of natural disasters around the world has been accompanied by concomitant, growing sophistication in disaster planning and response. In recent years, incident command systems, mass casualty trainings, triage protocols, inter-agency communication strategies, along with backup systems for power, personnel, and equipment have all seen an exponential growth in competence and understanding. Hospital Preparedness Plans and National Disaster Management Plans have now become the norm in many high- and middle- income countries. These preparedness plans and related exercises focus on emergencies which could potentially result in significant surges in patien

Learning from Japan: PPPs for infrastructure resilience

Learning from Japan: PPPs for infrastructure resilience | Ufficio RIA 2.0 | Scoop.it
Also available in: Español | 日本語 Photo: MediaFOTO/PIXTA In March 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake struck Japan, unleashing a tsunami that left some 20,000 people dead or missing. Sendai, the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture and a regional economic hub, was heavily affected by the disaster. About 500,000 residents in the city lost access to water, and the city’s primary wastewater treatment plant was completely submerged by the tsunami. Also, the tsunami damaged 325 kilometers of coastal railway assets and flooded about 100 kilometers of national highway in the Tohoku region, leading to the immediate closure of inland transport access to the devastated towns in need of assistance. Four years later, while the recovery effort from the earthquake and tsunami was still underway, a private consortium signed a 30-year concession to operate Sendai Airport, making it the first state-owned airport in Japan operated by the private sector. This success was welcomed by policymakers and public-private partnership (PPP) practitioners with surprise—how could it be possible for a private operator to make a long-term investment decision in such a disaster-prone region?
