File Toward Capacity Building for Integrated Environmental Risk Assessment and Management in Africa by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:08 AM
This paper is designed to provide background information on integrated environmental risk assessment and management. It seeks to highlight key issues with the view to stimulating discussions of the Regional Consultation on Capacity Building for Integrated Environmental Risk Assessment and Management in Africa to be held in Lusaka 30-31 January 2001. The first sections of the paper make an attempt to clarify the concept of risk assessment and establish a case for capacity building for environmental risk assessment and management in Africa. Subsequent sections endeavor to shed some light on generic risk assessment and management frameworks that the Regional Consultation can build upon or develop alternative models. The paper makes also effort to identify key environmental risk concerns in Africa based on studies done by recognized institutions as well as media reports. Writing a short, meaningful and useful paper on environmental risk assessment and management in Africa, however limited its purposes, is a risky undertaking for a number of reasons. First, the topic of risk assessment and management is wide and complex. Second, there is no specific geographic focus as there was desire to cover the entire Africa region. Third, as the Regional Consultation seeks to have a brainstorming character, there was fear that a background paper might limit the scope of discussion. On the other hand, there was a strong feeling that the paper could provide a valuable framework for the Consultation, as its duration is rather short (two days). The paper has benefited a lot from comments made on an earlier draft by the Peer Reviewers: Arne Dalfelt and Rolf H. M. Posthouwer. Comments of my colleagues in the Partnership for African Environmental Sustainability (PAES) and its Network have also been most invaluable.

Developing Geographic Information Systems for Land Use Impact Assessment in Flooding Conditions by S. J. Boyle, I. K. Tsanis,P. S. Kanaroglou — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:05 AM
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology is used to develop automated methods for quantifying the spatial variability of flood hazard. An interface module developed within GIS incorporated flood water elevations predicted from a hydraulic simulation, Ontario depth/damage curves, and simulation functions for evaluating alternative flood control policies. A case study from the town of Dundas, Ontario, Canada, is used to demonstrate the advantages that are gained by the application of this module. The proposed approach will provide water resources managers with improved insight into flooding conditions, strengthening the risk assessment process and the administration of human activities in river floodplains.

File Disaster Preparedness and Management in Zambia: Lessons for Integrated Risk Management by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:08 AM
The Government of the Republic of Zambia recognises the fact that it is its fundamental responsibility to protect the lives and property of its citizens during a disaster. The Zambian government has in this regard made efforts to create response mechanisms to tackle disaster situations in the country once they occur "disaster" and its definitions continues to alter over time, in accordance with changing ideas and scenarios concerning the causes and effects. A generally accepted definition of a disaster is that: A disaster is serious disruption of the functioning of society, causing widespread or localised human, material or environmental losses, which exceed the liability of the affected society to cope using only its own resources. The key elements in the above definition are disruption of normal functions and inability to cope using available resources by the concerned community. Implied in the above statement is the fact that a disaster occurs when a trigger mechanism or hazard affects human beings and their welfare. The severity of a disaster is therefore linked to the level of vulnerability of the affected population. This in turn depends on the population's resilience to with stand the shocks or stresses of disaster impacts. That capacity is heavily influenced by the population's prevailing socio-economic conditions or asset portfolio. High vulnerability is almost invariably a function of poverty, a lack of resources, lack of assets, lack of access to institutions education and other means of support.

File Global Welfare Guidance for Animals in Tourism by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 30, 2014 01:23 AM
The Global Welfare Guidance for Animals in Tourism together with a series of six supporting guidance manuals introduce minimum requirements, good and best practice for the most popular types of tourist activities involving animals. Working in consultation with the Born Free Foundation and the travel industry to develop these manuals, our aim is to provide balanced and science-based information around current best practice to ensure that both animal welfare and the quality of the customer experience are given a priority. These guidelines are intended for travel providers, tourist boards and destination governments and ultimately and most importantly, animal attraction and experience suppliers.
