II. Task 2 (3000 words – 25 MAY- 10 JUN)

The topic for this Major assignment has a focus on the measurement of disaster resilience in a community.

Details of task:
There is only ONE topic for this major assignment. However, the topic is in three parts.

Part 1:
Review the Characteristics of a Disaster Resilient Community, using the Australian National Strategy for Disaster Resilience and the key references in Sector B. Select and justify what you feel are the 6 key characteristics of a Disaster Resilient Community.

Part 2:
Compare and contrast 3 of the models for measuring disaster resilience in a community which were outlined in Sector C ie Torrens Institute Model, cutter’s Model and the ‘PEOPLES’ Model. Identify:

a. The strengths and weaknesses of each of the 3 models chosen;
b. Which model best reflects the 6 key characteristics of a Disaster Resilient Community that you identified in Part 1 and then use this chosen model in Part 3.

Part 3:
Using the Model you chose in Part 2, suggest how you would implement that model to measure disaster resilience in EITHER:

a)    The communities affected by the Victorian Floods of 2010/11 (Comrie report)
