Resilience into disaster risk management

özbaba, ilayda
Natural hazards always put human life in jeopardy and in order to protect ourselves from the effects of them, numerous disaster risk management techniques are used and it has been a critical concern for a long time. Many international institutions are dealing with beneficial programs and frameworks to decrease the detrimental effects of hazards. A recent terminology “resilience” plays an important role in this theme and resilience projects/programs are used in many continents nowadays. This thesis is oriented first to explain what resilience means and how it can be applied to financial disaster risk management. Then financial instruments that are used in financial hazard risk management are illustrated and resilience ideas in different continents are described. Main aim of the thesis is to investigate the resilience concept and its applicability in Türkiye with a focus on disaster risk reduction. The results of the analysis can provide useful recommendations for people who are interested in financial disaster risk management.


How prepared individuals and communities are for evacuation in tsunami prone areas in Europe? Findings from the ASTARTE EU Programme
Lavigne, Frank; Grancher, Delphine; Goeldner Gianella, Lydie; Karancı, Ayşe Nuray; Doğulu, Nilay; Kânoğlu, Utku; Ve, Diğerleri (2016-04-17)
Understanding social vulnerability to tsunamis provides risk managers with the required information to determine whether individuals have the capacity to evacuate, and therefore to take mitigation measures to protect their communities. In the frame of the EU programme ASTARTE (Assessment, STrategy And Risk reduction for Tsunamis in Europe), we conducted a questionnaire-based survey among 1,661 people from 41 nationalities living in, working in, or visiting 10 Test Sites from 9 different countries. The quest...
Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard and Risk Analysis: A Review of Research Gaps
Behrens, Jörn; et. al. (2021-04-29)
Tsunamis are unpredictable and infrequent but potentially large impact natural disasters. To prepare, mitigate and prevent losses from tsunamis, probabilistic hazard and risk analysis methods have been developed and have proved useful. However, large gaps and uncertainties still exist and many steps in the assessment methods lack information, theoretical foundation, or commonly accepted methods. Moreover, applied methods have very different levels of maturity, from already advanced probabilistic tsunami haz...
Resilience for Fire Safety
Kızılkaya Öksüz, Nilüfer; Tanyer, Ali Murat (2019-06-28)
The paradigm shift of disaster management studies from reactive strategies with rapid mobilization of resources and disaster responses to proactive strategies with hazard mitigation and vulnerability reduction have been reflecting the fire hazard researches. That paradigm shift directs fire safety management studies to the “concept of resilience,” which focuses on the capacity of human and physical systems to respond to extreme events. Despite its importance, fire safety issues are mostly considered as indi...
Identification of specific pollutants in Yeşilırmak river basin by using COMMPS and NORMAN prioritization methods
Erciyas, Emre; Yetiş, Ülkü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2018)
According to the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC), there is a need for the identification of substances posing a relatively higher risk to the aquatic environment and human health to be included in monitoring and risk assessment studies. Thus, river basin specific pollutants must be identified and regularly monitored by the EU Member States to achieve good ecological water status. This study aims to determine specific pollutants in the Yesilirmak River Basin. The national list of 250 river basin speci...
Probabilistic-fuzzy health risk modeling
Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin (2004-10-01)
Health risk analysis of multi-pathway exposure to contaminated water involves the use of mechanistic models that include many uncertain and highly variable parameters. Currently, the uncertainties in these models are treated using statistical approaches. However, not all uncertainties in data or model parameters are due to randomness. Other sources of imprecision that may lead to uncertainty include scarce or incomplete data, measurement error, data obtained from expert judgment, or subjective interpretatio...
