Phases of disaster management, general and </p><p>specific criteria governing steps in each phase Links between development planning and DM </p><p>planning Social consideration and peoples participation in </p><p>DM planing Institutional Framework for DM in Bangladesh</p></li><li><p>Modification of the Course (Proposed)</p><p> Current course involves 42 hours of lectures and no practice sessions.</p><p> 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.</p><p>Case Study: Objectives</p><p> Application of concepts and theories learnt in the Disaster Management course.</p><p> Developing a more concrete understanding of the concepts of hazards, vulnerability and risk.</p><p> Developing skills in risk assessment techniques.</p></li><li><p>Case Study: Objectives</p><p> Developing skills in GIS is NOT an objective in this course, because we have separate courses on GIS and RS.</p><p>Developing the Case Study</p><p>2 Strategies: Modify and stucture either of the two </p><p>studies presented earlier in this workshop: Delineation of Flood Zones in Dhaka City GIS-based Method for Estimating Emergency </p><p>Flood Relief Requirements</p><p> Develop an entirely new case study</p></li><li><p>Developing the Case Study</p><p>We have decided to use the data collected for the earlier studies for developing the case studies.</p><p>We have also decided to develop case studies from both the earlier studies since we will have 28 hours of lab sessions.</p><p>Developing the Case Study</p><p>With 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.</p><p>For the study for estimating the required amount of emergency relief supplies, use hypothetical damage ratios to further develop the methodology.</p></li><li><p>Case Study(Tentative)</p><p>Assessing the Vulnerability of Critical Installations in Dhaka City</p><p>Critical Installations: Facilities and utility lines that are important for disaster management, especially in the immediate post disaster stage.</p><p>Examples: Hospitals, fire stations, power stations, water mains, power lines etc.</p><p>Case Study(Tentative)</p><p>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-BUET</p></li><li><p>Case Study(Tentative)</p><p>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): </p><p>DESA, DURP-BUET Population data: BBS</p><p>Case Study(Tentative)</p><p>BBS: Bangladesh Bureau of StatisticsDESA: Dhaka Electric Supply AuthorityDCE-BUET: Dept. of Civil Engineering, BUETDURP-BUET: Dept. of Urban and Regional </p><p>Planning, BUETDWASA: Dhaka Water and Sewerage AuthorityGSB: Geological Survey of BangladeshWARPO: Water Resources Planning OrganizationWDB: Water Development Board</p></li><li><p>Developing the Case Study</p><p> ! </p><p> " "" # " $</p><p>% !
