Abstract

– The purpose of this paper is to that 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic vaccination deviated from predictions in the theory of political survival, and to that pandemic response because it was ruled by bureaucratized rather than by elected Design/methodology/approach – Focussing on the 2009 pandemic, the paper employs statistical analysis of vaccination in nine western democracies. To the plausibility of the novel explanation, it quantitative and qualitative content of media attention and coverage in two cases, the USA and Denmark. Findings – linking political survival to responses find little support in the substantial cross-country of vaccination responses during the H1N1 pandemic. Rather following a political logic, the studies of media coverage in the USA and demonstrate that the response was in the public health agencies and DMHA, respectively). Hence, natural disaster responses to follow a political logic, the to pandemics appears to be more instituted in the hands of bureaucratic Research limitations/implications – There is an value of encompassing bureaucratic in political theories of disaster bureaucratized expertise proved to a strong plausible explanation of the pandemic vaccination response. implications – Pandemic preparedness and depends critically on understanding the of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic; a key supported by this paper is expert-based agencies rather political leaders are the pivotal Originality/value – This paper is the to pinpoint the limitations of political theories of disaster responses respect to the 2009 pandemic. it is among the few to analyze the causes of in cross-country pandemic vaccination during the 2009 H1N1

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of paper is to explore whether offers any positive inputs to discourse in the field of disaster reduction and climate change and if so, what recommendations can be made for research on the topic. Design/methodology/approach – In to an in-depth literature review, on resilience were made on interdisciplinary research conducted in 2008-2011 with landslide communities, to map local understandings of in contrast to issues of risk and Findings – Resilience has the potential to a more systemic and cross-cutting to disaster risk reduction, change adaptation and the humanitarian However, it needs to be assessed as one attribute of sustainable development, not as a substitute. Originality/value – This provides new insights to the emerging between proponents and critics of the paradigm with recommendations for potential dangers that paradigm brings.

Abstract

Purpose – Satellite and images are increasingly used at stages of disaster management, in the detection of infrastructure damage. semi- or full automatic to detect damage have proposed, they have not used in emergency situations. maps produced by international are still based on visual of images, which is time- and The purpose of this paper is to how an automatic mapping of damage can be for a first and rapid assessment of damage. Design/methodology/approach – The study is located in Port-au-Prince (Haiti) by an earthquake in January 2010. To building damage, the paper optical images (15?cm of resolution) coupled with data (LiDAR, 1?m of spatial By undertaking an automatic object-oriented the paper identifies three of building damages: intact collapsed buildings and debris. – Data processing for the study covering 11?km 2 took 15 hours. The accuracy of the classification from 70 to 79 per cent depending to the of assessment. Causes of errors are limited spectral information of the images, resolution difference the two data, high density of but most importantly, certain of building collapses could not be by vertically taken images case of data in this Originality/value – The automatic damage developed in this paper to be reliable and could be used in situations. It could also be with manual visual to accelerate the planning of humanitarian and reconstruction.

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of paper is to: explore major and challenges facing healthcare operation specifically those to utility supplies; and quantify the of utility supplies interruption on the of healthcare facilities through the of an estimation model. Design/methodology/approach – A qualitative and quantitative research benefiting from an online program that applies the function analysis approach. was collected from 66 hospitals three major earthquakes struck northeast Japan in Findings – Analysis demonstrated healthcare utilities face major challenges: vulnerability of to natural hazards; low performance of sources; and lack of consideration of utility supplies in resilience and legislations. The study also a method to estimate the impact of interruption of healthcare facilities. A has been developed for the case hospitals in Northern Japan three major earthquakes in Practical implications – The findings are to raise the awareness of the critical utilities play for the operation of facilities which will lead to upgrading resilience and legislations. The findings are also to pool the literature with information about the resilience of utility publications. Originality/value – The and issues discussed in this are original based on authors’

investigations following three earthquakes that took in northeast Japan. The study a statistical approach in addressing the between the utility systems disasters to develop an innovative index to predict the impact of shortage on healthcare.

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of paper is to examine the experiences of the USA and nations with developed infrastructure and identify the critical that led the evolution of the US foot-and-mouth (FMD) response strategy. – A thorough literature review was including official reports of US FMD and peer-reviewed articles on outbreaks in FMD-free countries. Textual was conducted on past and current available US FMD response plans, the use of the term “vaccination” or “emergency indicating the potential use of these Findings – The USA has shifted from a of exclusively stamping-out to a response that would consider vaccination, including vaccinate to and vaccinate to live, in any FMD outbreak. The that led to this shift in include economic factors, the of new vaccine technologies, the changed of the US livestock industry, and the experiences of typically FMD-free countries. – An outbreak in the USA is likely to rapidly the current capacity for stamping-out. from other FMD outbreaks, and of publicly available literature the USA, indicates that it is important that further sufficient attention, and stakeholder need to occur to ensure strategies (to live and to slaughter) are in an outbreak.
