The Aussies have called for papers and reviewers on the following topics that to me look like a splendid effort for a book  to be entitled “The Future of Disaster Management”!

Here is the list:

Suggested Chapter Titles and Sub-themes:
• Understanding resilience and looking at management systems that provide for resilience;

• Circumvention strategies following an incident and their role in critical infrastructure protection so as to provide operational resilience;

• Differentiating the circumvention (immediate response) and long-term recovery zones (periods) of disaster management, and allowing smooth transition from the circumvention mode to the recovery mode;

• Use of simulation for disaster management;

• Public sector involvement in disaster management inclusive of local government inputs and international participation;

• Private sector involvement in disaster management inclusive of providing infrastructure for information flow, materials and sustenance provision, security, transport;

• Frameworks for large-scale disaster management;

• Frameworks for smaller-scale disaster and incident management;

• Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) and similar remote monitoring facilities for disaster management;

• Critical infrastructure protection definition;

• International trends in disaster response and management;

• Dedicated Information Systems for enhancing response and effectiveness of DM activities;

• The role of NGO’s in DM;

• Politics involved in disaster response and management;

• The reality between the all-hazards rhetoric and the government response to single hazard inquiries;

• Best practice in disaster inquiry staff and processes;

• The different response by the public to standard emergencies and large scale-disasters;

• The role of social media in disasters;

• Establishing protocols and information sharing systems with the main-stream media
