    SOLUTION

    Instructor: As you have been informed previously, today’s group discussion is on the topic ‘Flood Situation and Mitigating the Natural Disasters’. What are your opinions about it?Rashmi: India is surrounded by water on three sides. Coastal areas see a lot of floods in India and hence, it is a constant necessity to be prepared for such situations.George: I agree. It severely impacts states like Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Assam and Gujarat. The damage on crops, private property as well as Human lives is large and devastating.Malini: And that is why we need to employ proper safety measures before as well as after the disaster. Be it floods or any other natural disaster, we should always be prepared to help and manage the situation.Adil: Steps to prevent floods such as building dams and dykes, naturally bending the river flow, satellite image mapping, as well as irrigation and afforestation, have proven effective. Newer constructions need to be disaster-resistant and strong along with the usage of fire retardant materials.Vinisha: Property and life should be well insured. People should be informed beforehand about the standard protocol to follow in situations like these. As soon as the alert is received, immediate help from the Government and Military should be provided.George: For other natural disasters too, people should be informed and educated beforehand. In situations like these, staying away from buildings and houses, water bodies and electric poles is the first step to follow.Instructor: Thank you, this was a great discussion and each one of you contributed some very important ideas.

    Natural Disaster Mitigation and Relief

    Sudden-onset natural and technological disasters impose a substantial health burden, either directly on the population or indirectly on the capacity of the health services to address primary health care needs. The relationship between communicable diseases and disasters merits special attention. This chapter does not address epidemics of emerging or reemerging diseases, chronic degradation of the environment, progressive climatic change, or health problems associated with famine and temporary settlements.

    Chapter 61Natural Disaster Mitigation and Relief

    Claude de Ville de Goyet, Ricardo Zapata Marti, and Claudio Osorio.

    Sudden-onset natural and technological disasters impose a substantial health burden, either directly on the population or indirectly on the capacity of the health services to address primary health care needs. The relationship between communicable diseases and disasters merits special attention. This chapter does not address epidemics of emerging or reemerging diseases, chronic degradation of the environment, progressive climatic change, or health problems associated with famine and temporary settlements.

    In line with the definition of adopted in the constitution of the World Health Organization (WHO), the chapter treats disasters as a health condition or risk, which, as any other "disease," should be the subject of epidemiological analysis, systematic control, and prevention, rather than merely as an emergency medicine or humanitarian matter. The chapter stresses the interdependency between long-term sustainable development and catastrophic events, leading to the conclusion that neither can be addressed in isolation.

    Go to:

    Disasters as a Public Health Condition

    According to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, internationally reported disasters in 2002 affected 608 million people worldwide and killed 24,532—well below the preceding decade's annual average mortality of 62,000 (IFRC 2003). Many more were affected by myriad local disasters that escaped international notice.

    has multiple and changing definitions. The essential common element of those definitions is that disasters are unusual public health events that overwhelm the coping capacity of the affected community. This concept precludes the universal adoption of a threshold number of casualties or victims. What would be a minor incident in a large country may constitute a major disaster in a small isolated island state. Not only are "quantitative definitions of disasters unworkably simplistic" as noted by Alexander (1997, 289), but when based on the economic toll or the number of deaths, they are also misleading with regard to the immediate health needs of the survivors or their long-term impact on the affected country.

    Classification of Disasters

    In the early 1970s, a series of well-publicized disasters (the civil war and resulting famine in Biafra, the cyclone in Bangladesh, and the earthquake in Peru) triggered the scientific interest of the international public health community.

    Disasters can be classified as or . The latter include civil wars and conflicts. These classifications are arbitrary and refer to the immediate trigger—a natural phenomenon or hazard (biological, geological, or climatic); a technologically originated problem; or a conflict. In reality, all disasters are complex events stemming from the interaction of external phenomena and the vulnerability of man and society.

    The human responsibility in so-called natural disasters is well acknowledged. The term remains commonly used and should not be understood as denying a major human responsibility for the consequences.

    Disaster Terminology

    The following definitions are adapted from those proposed by the Secretariat of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR), a United Nations (UN) body established to sustain the efforts of the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR 2004) and the WHO (WHO 2002):

    are potentially damaging physical events, which may cause loss of life, injury, or property damage. Each hazard is characterized by its location, intensity, frequency, and probability.

    is a set of conditions resulting from physical, social, economic, and environmental factors that increase the susceptibility of a community to the effects of hazards. A strong coping capacity—that is, the combination of all the strengths and resources available within a community—will reduce its vulnerability.

    is the probability of harmful consequences (health burden) or economic losses resulting from the interactions between natural or human-induced hazards and vulnerable or capable conditions. In a simplified manner, risk is expressed by the following function:

    A public health approach to disaster risk management will aim to decrease the vulnerability by adopting prevention and mitigation measures to reduce the physical impact and to increase the coping capacity and preparedness of the health sector and community, in addition to providing traditional emergency care (response) once the disaster has occurred.

    Distribution and Risk Factors

    Health and relative economic losses of natural disasters disproportionately affect developing countries (Alexander 1997; UN/ISDR 2004). More than 90 percent of natural disaster–related deaths occur in developing countries. Even though the economic losses are far greater in industrial countries, the percentage of losses in relation to gross national product (GNP) in developing countries far exceeds that percentage in industrial countries (figure 61.1). At an individual level, a sudden reduction of US$5,000 from an annual income of US$50,000 is worrisome; however, the ongoing loss of US$50 from a monthly income of US$100 may be catastrophic.
