Aid and Reconstruction After a Disaster S. K. Jayasuriya, Peter McCawley. But
looking back over the experience in Aceh in the first two years after the disaster,
the nagging question remains: how can Indonesia best prepare to cope with
natural disasters in the future? It seems clear that in a developing country such as
Indonesia, disaster management should start with local society, at the local level.
In this context there are two main lessons to learn. First, it is important to improve
local ...

Another question is worthy of discussion: to what extent do knowledge and
experience of historical disasters going back several generations, or even
centuries, still have a practical learning effect? Pfister sees in longue durée a
quite practical dimension of learning from disasters. One example is the case of
choosing a low-risk location for buildings based on high-water marks. In areas at
risk of flooding, these marks are still seen on bridges and house walls, enabling
an everyday risk ...

We need to learn how to be comfortable leaving behind a house that is
significantly more disaster-resistant than what was there before, even if it looks
ugly. The poor are often pushed onto dangerous areas, but poor families'
decisions not to construct technically perfect homes wherever they live should be
respected. Safer is better. In vulnerability reduction the best is the enemy of the
good. A United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded
reconstruction effort in ...

I often sit here and want to ask the question, "What do you think?" because that is
how we are going to do it better. I am a pragmatist on this, having seen for myself
at the famous meeting in Khartoum when it finally dawned on me that there was a
whacking great gap in the system — I see I may have told the Committee before
— asking up and down the table, "Who is leading on camp management or water
and sanitation?", and the issue just bounced back and forth as everyone looked ...

My colleagues in the Government should, therefore, listen to us because we
genuinely want them to succeed. If they do so, Kenyans will benefit, and that is
what we want. So, the Government should look after us, and I am sure that we will
do well. Mr. Temporary Deputy Speaker, Sir, I would like to express my
opposition to the issue of creating a truth and reconciliation commission. I believe
that doing so will be a total waste of money. We do not need to keep on looking

"The little political passion play that's coming out of this is definitely going to be
an impediment to moving forward," said Fred Krimgold, director of the Disaster
Risk Reduction Program at Virginia Tech. "They're not addressing the real ... New
Orleans' future," Liu said. And the federal government has great power to assist
and guide the reconstruction, with money for housing, transportation and other
infrastructure — and the authority to dictate how that money is spent, Liu and
others say.
