Abstract Floods, which are frequent in France, can trigger a range of psychiatric problems. The most common is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although personality traits and cognitive emotion regulation strategies have already been shown to play a role in PTSD, the influence of these two dimensions and their interactions has seldom been explored among flood victims. We therefore set out to fill this lacuna, by PTSD symptoms, personality traits and cognitive emotion regulation strategies ...

Abstract Because property damage and loss of life owing to floods have increased in many countries in recent years, accurate assessment of flood risk is urgently needed for effective flood management. Improving the assessment of flood risk requires considering the impact of dam operation for flood control because dams and reservoirs play important roles in the assessment of flood hazards and associated damage. However, the impact of dam operation on flood hazards and associated damage was not co...

Abstract Continuous climate change has increased the intensity and frequency of abnormal weather, temperature fluctuations, and natural disasters, along with their subsequent damages. The temperature rise is related to the increased number of days with heat waves and tropical nights, which generate problems in many different areas. The risks from heat waves appear in multiple forms, such as disease severity and energy shortages. To respond effectively to such complex risks, it is necessary to an...

Abstract In this study we explore the capabilities and the impact of Emergency Prescription Assistance Program (EPAP) during Hurricane Maria in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) using descriptive analytic methods and mapping from the data provided by the Department of Health and Human Services. To date, this is the first peer-reviewed analysis of EPAP claims conducted since its launch in 2008 post Hurricanes Ike and Gustav. Three primary study objectives are explored: a) characterization of the chr...

Abstract Southwestern mountainous China is a vast, underdeveloped ethnic minority area with frequent geological disasters caused widespread poverty and therefore the inability to resist them, and relocation is one of the important measures targeted to geological disaster prevention and d poverty alleviation there. We argue that it is crucial to explore effective management models for rural communities relocated in the context of disaster risk management (DRM). We identify two dominating types of...

Abstract The impact of climate change and variability on household livelihood in the Himalayan region is hardly studied due to their locational inaccessibility. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to determine the factors which affect rural household vulnerability in sub-Himalayan West Bengal, India. How the socio-economic conditions of the households and climate change have been affecting the overall livelihood of this region? To understand the determining factors of household livelihood...

Abstract This paper aims to analyze how the consequences of natural disasters affect gender relations in socioeconomic terms. To meet this objective, we quantitatively analyzed the effect of the earthquake that occurred in Haiti in 2010 based on data from the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) developed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). To measure the impact of the 2010 earthquake we used the differences in differences (DID) technique. The estimation shows how t...
Abstract Collaborative disaster management based on trust and networks between the government and key actors in the community helps overcome the limitations of government-based human and material resources and enables a more effective rapid disaster response. Therefore, the role of public officials in building, maintaining, and developing collaborative disaster management with various actors is critical. This study analyzed the relationship between the expertise of disaster management officials ...
Abstract Public safety in air and ocean transportation is the utmost important consideration for national and international transportation authorities. When accidents occur, however, it normally requires joint civil and military efforts to perform search and rescue operations to locate the geographic locations of the disaster in searching for lives, the aircraft or the vessel in question. This research considers the problem for planning an ad hoc fleet for doing searching missions in high seas a...
Abstract Urban flood risk mapping plays a decisive role in urban management and planning, especially in reducing flood damages. In this study, a flood risk map was produced for Kermanshah city (Iran) by combining flood hazard and flood vulnerability maps. Based on effective factors of urban flooding, flood hazard maps were generated using two machine learning models: Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt) and Genetic Algorithm Rule-Set Production (GARP). These models were developed on 117 flood sites which we...
