Recognition of the linkages

After reviewing the relief and development continuum, provide each participant with a copy of the Bangladesh case study from the Disaster Management Ethics module (reprinted at the back of this guide). Ask them to identify

· the disaster proneness of the community
· the long-term development efforts and needs of the community
· the implications for emergency disaster response

Then, ask what a traditionally conceptualized emergency disaster response might be. Contrast that to an approach that recognizes the disaster management continuum.

Recognizing the linkages

· Disaster proneness
· Provision of assistance through emergency disaster response
· Long-term development
