NH9.2Forensic Disaster Analyses – Learning from Disasters
|Convener: Heidi Kreibich | Co-Conveners: Michael Kunz , Werner Trieselmann|
We welcome submissions on event centred research aiming to learn from a disaster for improving risk management and “building back better”. We are interested in contributions which cover some of the following aspects: geophysical or atmospheric processes, technological and structural, ecological, sociological, socio-anthropological or economic aspects of all types of damage, preparedness, emergency response, disaster relief and rehabilitation. Also investigations on the effectiveness of existing policy including recommendations for future policy improvements are in the scope of the session. Abstracts are sought from those involved in both the theoretical and practical aspects of the above mentioned or related topics.
This session is supported by CEDIM - Center for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology (http://www.cedim.de) with its current research focus on “Forensic Disaster Analyses” which adopts the comprehensive understanding of disasters while incorporating a real-time component to impact assessment, complementing the IRDR activities.
