Disaster Recovery

Comment:
Disaster Recovery Whether performed in the United States or in any other country, recovery is almost without question the most complicated aspect of emergency management and the least organized. Many (if not most) of the services and funding provided under ESF#14 focus on short- and medium-term recovery, and as such long-term recovery is performed (for the most part) in a hap-hazard, uncoordinated manner. The most common negative impact of failed or poor coordination is a maintained hazard risk and vulnerability to similar disaster events in the future. Secondary effects are missed opportunities to incorporate newer technologies, better urban planning, and other benefits that may have been neglected the first time around. Select a recent disaster that has occurred somewhere in the world in the past 3 months. Given what you have learned this week in the readings and associated material: a) What do you see as the greatest challenges to recovery in this instance? b) What are the greatest opportunities that exist as a result of the disaster? c) And finally, how did or has the affected government been coordinating coordinate recovery in the long-term? Please note: You must post answers to all three questions in your initial post, which should be completed by Thursday night of this week. Please make sure that you include references. These should be both in-text citations/references and a list of references at the end. Both must be in APA format. This applies to material taken from the text, website, course- assigned readings and others- in other words, anything that is not your own idea(s) and/or words. Direct quotes MUST include page numbers in addition to the in-text reference. Please reference the syllabus with regard to the section on academic integrity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HPooYWufhw
