1 Summer Disaster Institute PLAN 740 Disaster Recovery: Concepts, Policies and Approaches Karl Kim, Andrew Rumbach, Dolores Foley Ken Tingman, Gavin Smith, Carolyn Harshman University of Hawaii Wednesday, June 12 Thursday, June 20, 2013 Overview The purpose of this course is to explore concepts and policies related to one of the most vexing aspects of disaster management: the recovery of communities following catastrophic and other events which may cause long- term disruptions and challenges and opportunities for redevelopment and reconstruction. The course is intended for both planning students and for those in the graduate Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance (DMHA) program. It will be team- led by a group of faculty and practitioners who have been involved with various aspects of studying and managing the recovery of places. We will begin with an international perspective focusing first on the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, then progress to cases and examples of disaster recovery from Samoa, and the Gulf Coast and other communities around the world. Participants are invited to bring in and share their experiences with disaster recovery as we search for better ways of understanding, facilitating, and planning for recovery. Many of the core ideas will also be incorporated into the development of a training course for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as part of the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC). 1. Wednesday, June 12 (9 AM 12 Noon) Course Outline Challenges of disaster recovery What is so hard about recovery? Why does it belong within the domain of urban and regional planning? How does disaster recovery relate to other phases of the disaster cycle? Olshansky, R. (2009) The Challenges of Planning for Post- Disaster Recovery.

All students are to participate in the morning sessions. The afternoon session will involve administrative details related to the development of the FEMA course. The FEMA Course Development Process (James Burke) Review of Need Assessment/Planning Analysis What are gaps, deficiencies in knowledge and skills relevant to recovery? 4

5 Who is the target audience? What are the core capabilities? What is the critical content? What are the approaches to learning, building skills, and informing practice? How can we better incorporate resilience, whole community, sustainability, and green infrastructure in the training endeavors? Cases, exercises, and best practices. 7. Monday, June 17, 2013 (9 am 12 Pm) Learning from Katrina - Andy Rumbach What are some of the lessons from Katrina? Whole community and disaster recovery?

You are also expected to do research and to read other materials in support of the written assignments. There are three assignments. 1. Defining and Framing Recovery. Write a two- page (single- spaced) paper defining recovery as part of the overall disaster cycle which may include preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. Why is recovery such a challenging topic? What makes this relevant to the field of urban and regional planning as well as other disciplines that could support recovery? How do you measure success in recovery? (Due Thursday, June 13, 2013). Worth 20%. 2. Recovery Phases and Processes. Pick any recent disaster. Describe the disaster and when the recovery phase began. Explain the transition from response/relief to recovery. Highlight the differences between short and long- term recovery and identify the key stakeholders and participants in the recovery process. This essay should not exceed three pages. Worth 30% of the grade. Due Saturday, June 15, 2013). 3. Recovery Policy Evaluation Memo. Write a 10 page (maximum) analysis to the planning director and/or city manager of a community that you are interested in on the following tools which could be used in recovery planning: 1) eminent domain; 2) land re-adjustment; 3) land swaps; 4) buyouts. What are some of the legal, administrative, and policy issues facing communities wanting to utilize these tools in recovery planning. How do concerns such as property rights, police power, takings, defining and protecting health and safety or other public concerns enter into this discussion. Please discuss the pros and cons of these policies and identify potential benefits and costs. You will be expected to present your memo during the final class on June 20, This analysis is worth 50% of the grade. 6
