Lessons from recent earthquakes A large portion of life losses and economic consequences are blamed on 9Obsolete building codes 9Careless design 9Faulty workmanship 9Deficient quality control Each new earthquake brings new surprises 9Discloses previously ignored sources of increased hazard, vulnerability and risk 9Calls attention about previously unnoticed risk .   This chapter introduces the concept of disaster risk reduction and management (DRR&M). It gives a historical perspective and identifies some of the recent natural disasters that have occurred. It identifies the phases of managing disaster as risk assessment, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery and reconstruction. However, the disaster statements seen in the Great East Japan Earthquake consisted of widespread, complex disasters, and a measure was introduced to distinguish between level 1 and level 2 disasters. The disaster area is still in the process of recovery even after 10 years, and the idea of pre-reconstruction to discuss the planning before Cited by: 1. Chapter outlines. Chapter 1 outlines the purpose of this book. It offers an introduction to earthquake risk, the global emphasis on disaster risk reduction, the EwF partnership and ongoing work in China, which has led to this book. Chapter 2 looks at earthquake disaster risk reduction policies and programmes in China.

Earthquake Disaster Management in the World earthquake disaster reduction in the fields of building and housing.

This book is a unique, transdisciplinary summary of the state of the art of disaster risk reduction (DRR) in Indonesia. It provides a comprehensive overview of disaster risk . The new book ‘Disaster Risk Reduction in Indonesia: Progress, Challenges and Issues’, co-edited by myself and Dr. Matthias Garshagen, is the first collection of works specifically focused on disaster risk reduction in the country. The research that informed it, revealed the extent to which the increasingly complex nature of disaster risk. Earthquakes may cause liquefaction, landslides, fire, and tsunami which would lead to far higher level of damage and losses. This module is focused on assessing only earthquake shaking hazard and risk. The assessment of earthquake risk constitutes the first step to support decisions and actions to reduce potential losses.

  After a spate of recent natural disasters the world is wondering if natural disasters are becoming more frequent and more intense. The July series of two major quakes and more than aftershocks in New Zealand followed devastating shocks in Christchurch New Zealand that killed only two years s: 3.   Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and Earthquake Preparedness - Davao 1.

The earthquake in Nepal was a major disaster, but it was just one of many triggered by natural hazards during the writing of this book. Global disaster data from , the most recent annual analysis to be published, shows that there were reported disasters triggered by geophysical, meteorological and climatological hazards in that year, affecting countries, resulting in .   The preceding Perspectives in this series (1–4) provide snapshots of the earthquake and tsunami risks, hazard monitoring and risk mitigation activities, and current research questions concerning some of the world's seismic hot spots—South Central Asia, the Caribbean, Turkey, Tokyo, and image that emerges is one of considerable progress in reducing losses due to earthquakes Cited by: 9.
