Materiale Tecnico

Prendendo spunto dal modello del Ciclo del Disastro, composto dalle azioni: prevenzione, preparazione, soccorso, recupero, ripristino, in un'ottica di mitigazione e costruzioni di sistemi/comunità resilienti, in questa parte del sito vengono presentati, suddivisi per argomenti, tutti quegli approfondimenti tecnici che possono essere utili per una formazione permanente ed un approfondimento delle tematiche di proprio interesse.

Child-centred disaster risk reduction: building resilience through participation

Approfondimento - lettura destinata solo agli utenti registrati

The report presents information about Plan's child-centred approach to disaster risk reduction. It explains the achievements, lessons and recommendations for replication, demonstrating how child-centred disaster risk reduction (DRR) can provide an innovative approach for the delivery of the Hyogo Framework’s Priorities for Action, reducing risks not only for children, but for whole communities. It also shows how child-centred DRR can contribute to the realisation of children's rights to education, health and participation. The findings presented by the report are primarily the result of the achievements of thousands of children on the front-line of disasters who enthusiastically committed to building the resilience of their communities. Many of them stepped confidently well beyond the confines of their families, schools and communities to urge governments and international agencies to prioritise the needs and views of young people.

Approfondimento - lettura destinata solo agli utenti registrati

This paper describes the term 'resilience' used in the context of discussion, policies and programming around climate change adaptation ('adaptation') and disaster risk reduction (DRR), and reviews academic conceptualisation of this concept in social, ecological and socio-ecological systems. Using 16 overlapping conceptualisations of resilience from the literature, it outlines key characteristics and indicators of resilience, and captures the key findings, including detail on indicators, in a meta-table.

Country risk management: making societies more resilient

AUTORE: Swiss Reinsurance Company (Swiss Re) - EDIZIONE: 2010
Approfondimento - lettura destinata solo agli utenti registrati

This publications addresses the possibility for countries to identify and prepare risks through integrated risk management approaches. It states that early identification and prioritisation of risks enable societies to increase their resilience by preventing, reducing or adapting to them, including measures to finance economic losses before an event occurs through risk transfer solutions. It advocates for high-level coordination across government, political and private sector bodies to be enhanced, and for a country risk officer to act as a focal point in the process of systematic risk management to provide a public face.
