Abstract:

This dissertation primarily uses observations made during the 2005 Kashmir earthquake relief effort and available disaster literature to address problems that impede effective and efficient disaster preparedness and response. Three manuscripts form the body of the dissertation. The manuscripts are thematically linked through the Emergency Management Cycle. Each manuscript examines actual problems and provides recommended solutions to these problems along with a strategy to implement them. The first manuscript proposes a practical method whereby emergency managers can assess risk in their community and examines the use of schools as the basis of a community-wide relief center plan. The second manuscript draws on observations from the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and available literature to examine impediments to operational geo-information utilization during that relief effort. The manuscript concludes with recommendations on how to increase the accessibility of geo-information to a diverse group of users and better manage geo-information during future disaster response efforts. The last manuscript supplements the study of civil-military relief efforts with contemporary anecdotal experience. The research examines the interaction between US military forces and other disaster relief actors during the 2005 Kashmir earthquake relief effort. The manuscript puts forth the Kashmir Model of integration, coordination, and transparency of intent as a framework in which future humanitarian assistance operations can be successfully executed.
