the download on natural disasters vs humans

 
 

Welcome to the download on natural disasters. Exclusively keeping up with disaster relief on the news while storms are upon us can feel like a hopeless mess. I hope this download gives you a better snapshot of what to anticipate as weather patterns intensify over time and what to watch for as people present solutions for the future.

2. who is most vulnerable?

It’s not a question of whether natural disaster’s will come, but rather a question of how prepared we are to recover. However, some are more able to recover than others.

5. vulnerable populations will grow

With the wealthy or economically stable escaping disaster zones, the poor are left with a lack of resources, lack of education, and rising populations to juggle while trying to recover.

6. what does the road to recovery look like?

While immediate resources to help feed, clothe, and house people is imperative, it’s prevention that will lead to the long term recovery and resilience of vulnerable communities.

you did it.

My biggest take away after reading “We Fed an Island” and researching this topic is that we must build more resilient communities. Preparing to act quickly, not only when disaster strikes, but when people uncover solutions that are achievable and sustainable will be vital for the survival of coastal cities and our access to them. Below are some accounts I recommend so you can keep downloading on the daily.
