Description: 

20th October 2014, 13:00 to 14:30, W007, Dept of Geography, Dr Ines V. Danao, Asian Social Institute

A seminar considering lessons to be drawn from the disaster risk reduction and management responses to Typhoon Haiyan in 2013; the 1990 Baguio Earthquake; 1991 Mount Pinatubo Eruption; and 2004 Mudfloods caused by Typhoon Winnie in the Philippines will be given by Dr Nancy Parreño from the Philippine Women’s University and Dr Inès V. Danao from the Asian Social Institute.

While both speakers have been involved in supporting victim survivors of these disasters, Dr Parreño will highlight community risk reduction and resilience building in the aftermath of such disasters and Dr Danao will emphasise governance issues, the creation of child friendly spaces in evacuation centres and critical incident stress debriefing.

This event was developed through links made with Professor Lena Dominelli at Durham in the aftermath of Hurricane Haiyan (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda). It is made possible by a generous charitable donation to IHRR. Both speakers will also present a seminar of interest to practitioners working in disaster settings in the School of Applied Social Sciences on 23 Oct 2014.
