Die Schweiz hat mit einer anderen Pandemie gerechnet, aber flexibel geplant

Dieser Blogbeitrag gehört zur Coronavirus-Blog-Reihe des CSS, die einen Teil des Forschungsprojektes zu den sicherheitspolitischen Implikationen der Corona-Krise bildet. Weitere Informationen finden Sie auf der CSS-Sonderthemenseite zur Corona-Krise.

Der Pandemieplan der Schweiz fokussiert auf Influenzaviren. Wie nützlich ist das in einer Corona-Pandemie? Hat die Schweiz für den falschen Fall geplant? Die Antwort ist ja – und nein. Viele Checklisten und Tabellen des Influenza-Pandemieplans lassen sich in der Corona-Pandemie nur bedingt nutzen. Gleichzeitig ist der Plan aber von der Idee der «systemischen Flexibilität» durchdrungen. Weil eine Pandemie nie so stattfindet, wie im Szenario durchgespielt, müssen sich die Schweiz und ihr Gesundheitssystem anpassungsfähig zeigen.

Selected Targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction

This graphic outlines data related to four of the seven targets set out in the 2015 Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), which seeks to highlight the interdependencies between sustainable development, human development and disaster risk reduction (DRR).

Coordination of Volunteer Efforts in Post Disaster Stage

Large scale events like the coronavirus (COVID-19) and other factors are changing how we volunteer during disasters. This week’s featured graphic points out objectives, principles and suggested actions to help the coordination of volunteers in the immediate aftermath of a disaster event. For more on the integration of spontaneous and emergent volunteers in disaster management and civil protection, read CSS’ Tim Prior and Florian Roth’s CSS Risk and Resilience Report on Volunteerism in Disaster Management.

This article was originally published by the Environmental Change and Security Program’s New Security Beat on 21 October 2019.

The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction recently released the fifth edition of the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR19). The report highlights the increasingly complex interaction between hazards, and provides an update on how risk and risk reduction are understood in practice. GAR19 also highlights how the latest Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) framework integrates into global goals such as the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. To better understand the scope and significance of this report, New Security Beat sat down with Roger Pulwarty, Senior Scientist at NOAA, and a lead author of the GAR19.
