Phases of disaster management, general and specific criteria governing steps in each phase Links between development planning and DM planning Social consideration and peoples participation in DM planing Institutional Framework for DM in BangladeshModification of the Course (Proposed) Current course involves 42 hours of lectures and no practice sessions. We propose to divide the 3-credit course into 2 credits of theory and 1 credit of sessional, i.e., 28 hours of lectures and 28 hours of practice sessions.Case Study: Objectives Application of concepts and theories learnt in the Disaster Management course. Developing a more concrete understanding of the concepts of hazards, vulnerability and risk. Developing skills in risk assessment techniques.Case Study: Objectives Developing skills in GIS is NOT an objective in this course, because we have separate courses on GIS and RS.Developing the Case Study2 Strategies: Modify and stucture either of the two studies presented earlier in this workshop: Delineation of Flood Zones in Dhaka City GIS-based Method for Estimating Emergency Flood Relief Requirements Develop an entirely new case studyDeveloping the Case StudyWe have decided to use the data collected for the earlier studies for developing the case studies.We have also decided to develop case studies from both the earlier studies since we will have 28 hours of lab sessions.Developing the Case StudyWith the data collected and digitized for the flood area delineation study, develop a case study for Dhaka City. This would be the CASITA project case study.For the study for estimating the required amount of emergency relief supplies, use hypothetical damage ratios to further develop the methodology.Case Study(Tentative)Assessing the Vulnerability of Critical Installations in Dhaka CityCritical Installations: Facilities and utility lines that are important for disaster management, especially in the immediate post disaster stage.Examples: Hospitals, fire stations, power stations, water mains, power lines etc.Case Study(Tentative)Probable Data Catalogue Topography (to be digitized): WARPO DEM (probably available): WARPO Satellite Image (IRS pan): DURP-BUET Road network: DURP-BUET Geological map: GSB Faults and lineaments: GSB Earthquake catalogue: DCE-BUETCase Study(Tentative)Probable Data Catalogue Soil map: SDRI, DCE-BUET Water table: DWASA Ward boundaries: DURP-BUET Locations of point facilities: DURP-BUET Locations of utility lines (to be digitized): DESA, DURP-BUET Population data: BBSCase Study(Tentative)BBS: Bangladesh Bureau of StatisticsDESA: Dhaka Electric Supply AuthorityDCE-BUET: Dept. of Civil Engineering, BUETDURP-BUET: Dept. of Urban and Regional Planning, BUETDWASA: Dhaka Water and Sewerage AuthorityGSB: Geological Survey of BangladeshWARPO: Water Resources Planning OrganizationWDB: Water Development BoardDeveloping the Case Study !
