Armed with the sole weapon of my research rationale, I’ve just started hunting for data on the web regarding different aspects of the arthquake relief process.
On the one hand, the italian events, in constant comparison with foreign perspectives. On the other one, all the factors contributing to the relief process: from the first minute interventions, communications, technologies, funding, mid and long terms processes.
Here below is what I’ve found out…
Here the key insights at a first glance:
- Earthquake are consistent and severe, but not extraordinary in terms of losses or damages.
- Immediate communication and coordinations works fairly well under Protezione Civile lead.
- …but there is no current bottom-up communication standard.
- Info are fragmented and hand acquired
- Great progress have been made in reconstruction open datasets and accountability in some cases…
- …but Italy is one of the few “first world country” with no coordination for funds
- As a result, Church-owned heritage gets fixed extra fast…
- …while private struggles to receive funding (requires projects proposal and approval from the public)
Next step will be build an infographic summarising the key findings, stay tuned!
