  • Community Perspective on Policy Options for Resettlement Management: A Case Study of Risk Reduction in Bududa, Eastern Uganda. [Journal Article]
  • PCPLoS Curr 2018 Jul 26; 10
  • Neema S, Mongo Bua G, … Bazeyo W
  • CONCLUSIONS: We used Deliberative Polling, an innovative approach to public policy consultation and found that although the community is in agreement with most government policy options under resettlement management, they lacked an understanding of the rationale underlying these policy options leading to challenges in implementation. The community members seemed uncertain and had mistrust in government's ability to implement the policies especially on issues of compensation for land lost. Key Words: Policy, Deliberative Polling, Climate change, risk-reduction, landslides, Uganda.
  • Attachment, Bushfire Preparedness, Planning, and Response among Animal Guardians: A South Australian Case Study. [Journal Article]
  • PCPLoS Curr 2018 Aug 02; 10
  • O'Dwyer L, Thompson K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our discussion of the differences in demographics, preparedness, planning and response characteristics of participants with high and low animal attachment confirms research suggesting that animal guardians take risks to save their animals during disasters. Our findings also support recent propositions that animal attachment and ownership could be used to increase the natural disaster preparedness and survivability of animal guardians. However, making sure that animal attachment functions as a protective factor requires active and effective intervention through education, behaviour change and social marketing strategies. Whilst our study is high in ecological validity, future research with larger samples sizes is required to determine the generalisability of our findings to animal owners and guardians in other locations, facing fires with other characteristics, especially for owners and guardians with low levels of attachment.
  • Strategies for disaster risk reduction education: A systematic review. [Journal Article]
  • JEJ Educ Health Promot 2018; 7:98
  • Aghaei N, Seyedin H, Sanaeinasab H
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most countries have launched DRR education activities, but these actions are not enough, and there are some gaps between what is it and what should be. More effective and efficient teaching and learning strategies are needed to increase the effectiveness of preparedness and DRR activities at all levels of community.
