Emergency and disaster management
Hi I just wanna write about Hurricane Sandy disaster that one happened in 2012 United States.
Assessment Item Two: Case Study Assignment.
Imagine you have been asked to provide expert commentary on an event to a senior level of government (e.g. A Minister). Students will undertake an examination of an
event that has occurred. A commentary of the event should be prepared including:
A description of the event.
An analysis of how the management of the event accorded with the principles of effective disaster management throughout the cycle of preparedness, response and
A discussion of how the lessons learned from the event (both what went well and what did not go well) may be applied in the future.
The assignment should demonstrate your analytical abilities, an understanding of the basic principles and the ability to identify and critically analyse the issues
that you identified.
Students should undertake this task individually, although it is recognised that individual students may elect to examine the same event. Students may select their own
events or seek advice from the lecturers and Unit Coordinator. You would be strongly advised to discuss your selection with one of the staff during the block program.
There is no particular word limit for this assessment, but it is recommended that you stay within 1500-2000 words. It should be noted that brevity can represent
clarity of expression.
