  • Gone with the Mud: Learning from the Niterói Disaster in Brazil

    Natural disasters, landslides, and flooding are recurrent in South and Central American countries. A dark cloud hangs over Brazil as a result of political corruption scandals that have swept up former and current presidents and financial corruption at Petrobras, which has now ensnared some of the nation's top business leaders and legislators. These criticisms coupled with the handling of the Niteroi disaster of 2010, highlight how culture and politics negatively influence Brazil's response to crisis. Brazilian political culture, much like its business culture, is considered paternalistic—a superior/subordinate relationship, in which the superior guides and protects and the subordinate is loyal and respectful. The concept of Jeitinho is very attractive to political candidates because they know that these "helpers" in such positions will have many "followers" just because of the vast dispensation of political favors. Crisis response must be quick and effective. Niteroi mayor's response to the crisis was neither fast nor effective.

  • Integrated Risk Management in Supply Chains

    Integrated Risk Management in Supply Chains examines supply chain risk management. The increased interest in the topic is due to a number of factors including the increased volatility of commodity prices and exchange rates, recent natural disasters, and the increased importance of multinational corporations. The motivation for risk management comes from a variety of sources: financial distress costs, managerial incentives, and other important reasons discussed in the remainder of this book. Understanding the motives is important because they provide insights into which risks should be managed and how a firm’s risk management operations should be organized. The first part examines Buffering Supply Chain Risk with Operational Flexibility and deals with uncertainty in the form of routine variability, which includes fluctuations in demand. Part 2 reviews Supply Disruption. Both the preponderance of natural disasters and huge economic swings can cause extreme challenges across the supply chains. Although these types of risks are rare, they are highly consequential and buffering is insufficient to mitigate them. Instead, firms facing these risks must engage in contingency planning and must maintain redundancies in the system. This is why contingency planning is on the interface of operations and finance. Part 3 looks at Commodity Price Risks, which includes five papers on managing price risks – the first three papers are fundamental in that they ask “when” and “how” firms should manage price risks with hedging and how hedging affects operating policy and the remaining two papers examine the best practices in specific industries.

  • Characteristics of Critical Communications Systems

    This chapter addresses what users expect from critical communications systems so that they can perform their functions as efficiently as possible. It focuses on the primary characteristics of critical communications systems, as driven by the needs of users. The chapter describes a list of features that apply to critical communications systems as well as to commercial wireless networks within the context of public safety networks. It also provides a list of features that mostly apply to critical communications systems. Interoperability is a must feature in critical communication systems. Unfortunately, interoperability is one of the weakest links in current critical communications, especially in the public safety area. Natural and manmade disasters have shown us that all agencies cooperating during such disasters must be able to communicate to help the public. Therefore, interoperability among all the networks (regardless of the technologies) used by all agencies is a paramount interest.

  • 6 On the Politics of Generative Justice: African Traditions and Maker Communities

    Our understanding of political economy has been strongly influenced by two models: the free market economy of private ownership and the socialist vision of government ownership. The socialist vision is one that calls for distributive justice—the top-down redistribution of wealth. Its application in the USSR was a humanitarian and ecological disaster, so it is no surprise that African socialism did not fare any better. Similarly, the free market approach has resulted in the alarming acceleration of wealth inequality unsustainable extraction of natural resources, and environmental disasters on a global scale. Rather than import these failed models from European roots, it is our contention that a better framework for egalitarian and ecologically sustainable societies lies in African indigenous traditions—a framework we refer to as generative justice. However, this is not to imply that Africa needs some sort of cultural purity; generative justice can be seen in many forms throughout the world. One of the primary exemplars for contemporary generative justice has been the maker movement, and for that reason we focus on African maker communities in this chapter.

  • Tweets from Fukushima: Connected Sensors and Social Media for Dissemination after a Nuclear Accident

    Digital services for information and communication, especially social media, are increasingly being used to share the information required to manage disasters such as a nuclear accident. In this particular case, victims can only rely on measurements to evaluate the radioactive contamination of the environment, food and people. This chapter presents a study that is the accident that took place at the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in March 2011. It also deals with a type of connected object, the radiameter, which is a physical object endowed with radioactivity sensors. Social media is an important lever for the diffusion of information, especially during natural or industrial disasters. The chapter details the spread of measurements from connected sensors via social media during the post‐accident phase of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. It further discusses the forms and processes of the dissemination of information relating to radiation measurements via Twitter.

  • DNS Security Strategy

    This chapter summarizes key elements of a domain name system (DNS) security strategy. Available, responsive, and accurate DNS service is an absolute must in today's internet protocol (IP) networks. A multifaceted defense in depth approach is required to provide a secure defense against attackers, natural disasters, and human errors. The chapter also summarizes this first with respect to basic approaches to mitigate major vulnerability types and tactics for inclusion in the overall security strategy, securing the infrastructure, and specific strategies for each major DNS role or function. It further summarizes the Cybersecurity Framework outcomes to consider when developing a comprehensive security management plan. A vulnerability management plan describing the process for vulnerability identification, assessment, likelihood analysis and potential impacts is developed and implemented. Finally, the chapter lists protection strategies for corresponding vulnerabilities and risks.

  • 9 Data Analytics and Displacement: Using Big Data to Forecast Mass Movements of People

    In recent years, the global population of people forcibly displaced by conflict and persecution has reached levels unprecedented since World War II. Acute natural hazards also lead to large-scale movement of people, some temporarily and others permanently. Since 2008, the number of disaster- displaced averaged 21.5 million each year (IDMC, 2016). In many cases, both human-made and natural factors precipitate large-scale displacement, as witnessed by recurrent famines in Somalia caused by the confluence of drought, conflict, and political instability that impede access to food relief. This chapter identifies novel big data sources, methodologies, and challenges that need to be addressed in order to develop more robust, timely, and reliable evidence-based systems for detecting and forecasting forced migration in the context of humanitarian crises.

  • Emergency Risk Communication

    This chapter presents guidelines for communicating in emergencies, meaning sudden or unforeseen situation that requires immediate action, such disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and terror attacks. It covers preplanning, working with communities, teaming with other organizations, developing risk communication plans, use of emergency operations centers and hotlines, exercise and drills, working with vulnerable populations, working with the media, crowdsourcing and other social media techniques, and communicating after emergencies. Five case studies and other real‐life examples are presented and critiqued.

  • Containing Ebola in Nigeria: Lessons in Effective Risk and Crisis Communication

    Nigeria has experienced a series of crises—a civil war, several spates of political and religious crises, natural disasters, the ongoing Boko Haram terrorism, and the recent Ebola crisis. This chapter adds to the body of work on the various crisis cases. It examines how Nigeria beat the Ebola virus disease (EVD) with few deaths in only three months when other West African countries struggled to contain the deadly virus with devastating and fatal results. An encouraging development is the establishment of a Centre for Crisis Communication in Nigeria's capital, Abuja. The government's rapid response and unprecedented cooperation with nongovernmental organizations, swift deployment of health personnel, and use of existing health and crisis management facilities, including an Incident Management Center which was repurposed as an Emergency Operations Center, and a vigorous risk communication campaign, ensured that the Ebola virus was quickly contained, with only nine deaths.
