主题：Pressure and Release (PAR)Model and ACESSModel forDisasterRiskReduction
时间：6月15日（周五）下午13:30 – 16:15
报告简介：The lecture introduces the disaster risk reduction concept of Ben Wisner et al.'s book "At Risk". They advocate that disaster occurs where societal vulnerability meets with natural hazards. Pressure of societal vulnerability progresses from root causes transformed by dynamic pressure into unsafe conditions. In order to reduce disaster risk, it is necessary to release the pressure of vulnerability by progression of safety by addressing root causes, releasing pressure and achieving safe conditions. As for the household level, it is necessary to look at disaster as the turn of normal life to abnormal life by losing access to various resources available in normal life. Especially access to physical health, income sources (job), information, transportation, education opportunities etc. are important. Such way of looking at disaster effect in household level is important for community level disaster management.
