EUROPEAN MANPOWER PROBLEMS IN DISASTER RELIEF EFFORTS

Marc de Bruycker
Adriano Mantovani
Stephanie Simmonds



This session looks at quality rather than quantity. In this session the deficiencies of present performance will be examined from four viewpoints: those who have made a special study of acute disaster and of refugee situations, a European country that has recently suffered from an acute disaster, and a developing country that has had many agencies working on its famine and refugee situations.


15.30 - 16.00


Coffee


16.00 - 17.00

5

DISCUSSION OF LIKELY MANPOWER NEEDS BY PERFORMANCE AND ROLE

Plenary



This is an attempt to define who will need training: how many, from what countries, with what experience and what qualifications, for all the relevant forms of disaster.


Wednesday 3 March


Chairman - Professor Lechat


09.00 - 11.00

WHAT TEACHING PROGRAMMES HAVE ALREADY BEEN HELD?

Stephanie Simmonds



A background paper giving a factual review on a world scale of the courses held in terms of size, frequency, duration, type of students, objectives and content.


11.00 - 11.30


Coffee


11.30 - 12.30

7

WHAT COURSES ARE NEEDED FOR THE FUTURE?

Plenary



This will be a broad plenary discussion and in particular will go beyond the areas covered so far. Other aspects of disaster that nobody has considered can be brought up and aired generally, with a view to picking up the conclusions in session 14, for subsequent exploration by the Council of Europe. The discussion will also focus on the needs defined in session 5.


12.30 - 14.00


Luncheon


11.00 - 17.00

8

DISCUSSION OF THE NATURE AND CONTENT OF THE COURSES

Plenary



The general aspects of each curriculum will be discussed in plenary. This is important to avoid the curricula reflecting only the views of the small working groups.


Thursday 4 March




09.00 - 12.30

GROUP WORKING SESSIONS




The morning session of group working should lead to a clear draft curriculum following a standard layout which will be developed prior to the meeting. The group reports will consist largely of these course specifications, together with problems and other issues arising from the discussion. It is hoped that the reports can be produced early in the afternoon and typed for distribution in the evening. Each will then be revised in plenary session next day.


12.30 - 14.00

DISCUSSION OF GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS FINALISATION OF REPORT AND CLOSURE OF MEETING




The aim will be to push each curriculum as far along as is feasible but also to recommend a set of disaster-related areas for subsequent study. It is believed Chat while the 2 areas of special concern to the organisers can be pushed a long way forward, other areas will emerge which cannot be pursued in detail at this meeting
