Locally relevant case studies of environmental disaster

Building the disaster resilience of asylum seekers The Australian Red Cross in Queensland adapted a generic preparedness tool to support highrisk marginalised communities of asylum seekers to build their own resilience to disaster.

Specific and relevant messaging was developed within a community education programme co-designed with members of the asylum seekers community, who became educators and facilitators to deliver the programme. The programme reached 900 people in a successful pilot, measured through positive shifts in knowledge of key actions to take in preparedness of disaster. The underlying achievement is the acceptance and trust of the communities, reflecting the respect for cultural and language diversity, and recognizing the capacity of asylum seekers communities to contribute and participate in their host country.

The Indonesian Red Cross mobilized communities through Community-Based Action Teams to restore the ecosystem through mangrove plantation and implement livelihood generation to improve community resilience.

  • Forecast-based Financing for the vulnerable herders in Mongolia The Mongolian Red Cross Society MRCS assisted 2,000 herder households in most-at-risk areas 40 soums in 12 provinces with unrestricted cash grants in December 2017 and with animal care kits in January 2018, before the peak of the winter season;
  • Under an integrated approach, the community is connected with village authorities and scientists from the Bogor Agricultural Institute to implement sustainable local action;
  • While the application provides flood alerts and updates to the community through smartphones, the communities and Community Based Action Teams can update their response, upload photos, videos and relevant information to further inform response actions.

Under an integrated approach, the community is connected with village authorities and scientists from the Bogor Agricultural Institute to implement sustainable local action. The programme has shown concrete results in reducing the risks of tidal disasters, while eco-tourism and crab cultivation farming have increased the income of the communities, along with their heightened awareness and preparedness for disaster.

  • The processes of decoupling described above challenge the idea that early human societies lived more lightly on the land than do modern societies;
  • The twelfth season episode of called "" was conceived when writer heard a news story about Hill;
  • This is another good test to prepare you for the process.

Winter shelters for rural herder communities Rural herders in Mongolia must keep their livestock alive through extreme temperatures and exposure of harsh winters that follow after drought.

In efforts to reduce livestock loss, the Red Cross supported herder communities to design and construct winters shelters for livestock in a participatory approach garnering the collective capacity of community, local government and the Red Cross.

A strong community focus ensures that the herders drive the activities towards preserving their livelihoods and the traditional nomadic way of life under threat by climatic challenges. Youth-led actions for more resilient schools and communities: A pilot Youth in School Safety Programme rolled out in six countries, training 150 youth volunteers who in turn conducted countless school safety actions. A comprehensive mapping of school safety actions in all 11 countries of South Asia is underway to showcase activities of RCRC Youth volunteers on the ground.

Australian Business Roundtable for Disaster Resilience and Safer Communities Leaders of leading commercial organizations jointly commit resources to work constructively with government to make Australian communities safer and more resilient to natural disasters, by shifting national investment from recovery and response to preparedness and mitigation.

The Australian Red Cross joins this Roundtable - contributing on emergency management and humanitarian aspects - to collectively deliver on community education, risk information, adaptation research, mitigation infrastructure and strategic alliances. A seat at the table: This case study outlines the steps taken by the IFRC Disaster Law Programme - from global research undertaken jointly by IFRC and UNDP, to the provision of technical advice in supporting Asia Pacific National Societies, as the community-based actor and auxiliary to government, to ensure inclusive community empowerment and protection, gender and inclusion in national disaster laws and policies.

  1. Oh and I had to replace the catalytic converter because it was stolen. A strong community focus ensures that the herders drive the activities towards preserving their livelihoods and the traditional nomadic way of life under threat by climatic challenges.
  2. It is easier to denature plutonium than it is to denature the evil spirit of man. France and examined a 5-ingredient multivitamin.
  3. Being a coastal district prone to disaster, existing infrastructure and services cannot cope to cover the host population and incoming refugees, and preparedness interventions became critical.

Participatory Campaign Planning for Inclusive DRR Knowledge and Messaging in Nepal An innovative approach that embraces the essence of inclusiveness, the Participatory Campaign Planning methodology is applied to develop hazard messages and the means of communicating them that are tailored to different target groups, with the aim of making them more effective in creating behaviour change. This case study focuses on urban communities in Nepal and various elements to be considered within different target groups and their geographic environments.

Community participatory action research on sexual and genderbased violence prevention and response during disasters This collaborative research by the IFRC and the ASEAN Committee for Disaster Management was undertaken in recognizing that there are few SGBV studies that focus on low-income developing countries and fewer that go beyond the gendered effects on women and girls, overlooking men and boys and sexual minority groups.

Early Warning and Early Action: Effective early actions to reduce flood impacts When four pilot communities in the district of Bogura were affected by severe flood events in July and August of 2017, the Early Action Protocol of the Forecast-based Financing FbF approach was activated, and unconditional cash grant was chosen as the early action for floods to give people the flexibility to prepare individually for the impending flood and take the measures they see fit.

It analyses not only the effectiveness of the activation in Bogura, but the longer term impacts of this early action development.

Saving Thousands in Cyclone Mora Through the Bangladesh Cyclone Preparedness Programme CPP interventions, a programme jointly run by the Government of Bangladesh and the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society BDRCSthe communities of the coastal areas in Bangladesh have become more aware of the need to go to safe shelters during emergencies, have understood the significance of early warning and learned to pay heed to advice from CPP and youth volunteers.

On 28 May 2017 - the eve of Cyclone Mora, more than 55,260 CPP volunteers and BDRCS youth volunteers were deployed to pass early warning message door to door in the coastal region, and announcing the danger of the approaching cyclone in the local language. Cyclone early warning messages were disseminated across a population area covering 11 million people, and almost half a million people were reached in this process and taken to safe places in less than 24 hours.

The CPP has substantially reduce death tolls due to cyclones in Bangladesh.

While the application provides flood alerts and updates to the community through smartphones, the communities and Community Based Action Teams can update their response, upload photos, videos and relevant information to further inform response actions.

Forecast-based Financing for the vulnerable herders in Mongolia The Mongolian Red Cross Society MRCS assisted 2,000 herder households in most-at-risk areas 40 soums in 12 provinces with unrestricted cash grants in December 2017 and with animal care kits in January 2018, before the peak of the winter season.

The MRCS used the Dzud Risk Map released by the Government in November 2017 to decide which soums to target for early action with the aim to reach the herders well before the loss of their livestock to reduce the impact of Dzud on the livelihoods of the herders. The Dzud Risk Map highlighted the risk of livestock death throughout the whole of Mongolia. A cost-benefit analysis is being conducted to further inform FbF in Mongolia. Building partnerships to engage communities in preparedness and early warning systems in the Pacific A community early warning system CEWS model was developed in partnership by the Red Cross, government agencies and regional organizations in the Pacific to better link CEWS with national and sub-national systems.

Taking these pilots to scale requires i national mechanisms such as SOPs and action plans that systematically link warnings and climate information provided by National Meteorological Services to early preparedness actions at multiple scales, and; ii available funding at multiple scales to support early actions.

The drought thresholds developed in collaboration will form the basis of an FbF trigger system in the Solomon Islands.

Being a coastal district prone to disaster, existing infrastructure and services cannot cope to cover the host population and incoming refugees, and preparedness interventions became critical. This case study follows actions taken to extend the coverage of the Cyclone Preparedness Programme, successfully integrating displaced people in camp settlements as temporary CPP camp volunteers, to support in establishing early warning system and ensure relevant preparedness and response action.

Lessons learned from the 2015 Nepal earthquake response show that vulnerable populations in urban context do not often engage with or rely on local disaster management committees in the event of a disaster. Instead they organize themselves around their own networks, both informal and formal, such as family, temples, markets, service-providers, employment.

A meaningful DRR intervention in urban communities must first recognize what defines an urban community and how they are organized to guide specific engagement and participatory-led approaches.

The target group and network-based approach by Nepal Red Cross are innovations in organizing effective community-owned urban disaster resilience. Greening the IFRC Supply Chains; mapping of our GHG emissions Under the Green Response initiative to improve environmental outcomes of life-saving operations, the IFRC in reviewing practices and policies is mapping the present level of greenhouse gas GHG emissions generated by relief operations and to implement GHG reduction activities to lower the environmental impact of emergency operations.

The mapping contributes to the global emission baseline for IFRC supply chain monitoring, to design the reduction roadmap and build internal capacity. The EFA conducted an environmental impact assessment and worked with project leads to identify and implement improvements.
