Disaster Risk Reduction and Management

This course discusses disaster governance and global policy perspectives for Disaster Risk Reduction in the context of the principles set out in the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) 2007 and the emphasis on ‘Build Back Better’ encapsulated in the Sendai 2015 documents. It focuses on resilience theory, adaptation, and transformation in societies impacted by disasters. Taking a wide range of case studies from Asia and other areas of the world, this course explores the issues of participatory disaster governance, the role of decentralization of disaster resources and responsibilities, and best practice principles in preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery and reconstruction. By investigations of the application of human security and sustainable development principles, the course will take the student into the intersecting research communities of development, climate change, disasters, and poverty alleviation in studying how disasters impact on human, social and political behaviour, and how disaster impacted populations respond to these crisis events.

Disaster Recovery, Sustainability and Resilience (Module)

Sustainability, vulnerability and resilience are now key words for emergency managers. Disaster plans must incorporate the philosophy of sustainable development. Increasingly communities are being encouraged to find ways to build their resilience, rather than ‘waiting for help to arrive’. The degree to which a community is considered resilient is often spoken about in terms of its ‘vulnerability’. Through the use of case study examples this subject explores the concepts of sustainability, vulnerability and resilience in both the western and third world world context.

Civil-Military Relations in Conflicts and Disasters

This unit assesses the nature and effectiveness of civil-military cooperation and coordination in preparing for, responding to, and averting the impact of natural disasters (such as the 2004 tsunami) and conflict, particularly in Australia’s nearer region. The new realities of intra-state conflict and support to fragile states have seen Australia commit increased resources to enhance prospects for stability and reduce population displacement, while promoting economic development and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals to reduce poverty.

Students in this unit will examine the nexus between state-centric and human security, as well as the difficulties for military forces and humanitarian actors in navigating the ‘space’ in which they are co-located. Policies, principles and practices of the Australian Government, the United Nations, and other key international actors and non-government organisations are considered. Attention is also given to disaster risk reduction and peace-building strategies to help minimise the severity of natural disasters and the reversion of fragile states into conflict. Focus is given to the problems and severity of population displacement, and to the civil-military requirements to implement population protection, particularly under the Responsibility to Protect framework. The overall aim of the unit is for students to gain a better understanding of the boundaries and complexities of civil-military relations in disaster and conflict situations, and to consider initiatives relevant to Australia.
