Creating a Disaster Resilience Framework
Guidance for developing your own disaster resilience framework
Here are the following methods and tools to analyze disasters from various perspectives
and a variety of objectives. In other words, you can define the purpose of your framework in terms of what it is supposed to do and why.
1. Pressure and Release Model
2. Access Model
3. Sustainable Livelihood Approach
4. Social Capital Concept
5. World Risk Index
6. The MOVE framework
7. The BC HRVA method
8. The ON HIRA (March 26 class)
PLEASE CHECK ATTACHED FILES OF EACH TOPIC TO GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THEY MEAN
You will develop a framework for understanding and enhancing disaster resilience for the province of Ontario, Canada. Please be mindful that Ontario has urban and rural/remote communities, as well as an indigenous population on reserves.
As a general guideline, consider the following points in developing the framework.
Define an objective for the framework
You are free to pick and use the most relevant and effective components from the methods and tools listed above
Chose components that are applicable, easy to measure, and meaningful, and their direct or indirect interactions with each other make sense
Keep your framework simple for laypersons to understand, as communities will be responsible for implementing and sustaining the program for the long-term
Using a real disaster case, illustrate the application of the framework
No need to develop a scoring method to measure individual variables/indicators in the framework,but a general sense of how information is supposed to be gathered would be helpful
