The Preparedness Roadmap

"The Preparedness Roadmap" is a must-have for the library of every household seeking to improve their position in this unstable world.

The Preparedness Roadmap

If the world as you know it upended today, would you be prepared for the challenges to come? Hollywood serves up an endless supply of nightmares including war, climate catastrophes, and meteor strikes. But are these all imaginary? Millions of people around the world have opened their eyes to the potential for disasters big and small, from Electro-Magnetic Pulses, and attacks on the electrical grid down to medical emergencies and job loss. They do this because they believe life can change at a moment's notice. And they aren't wrong. We are walking on a razor's edge - politically, financially, and technologically. Major disruption is no longer the realm of fiction. And you may feel it too... "The Preparedness Roadmap" approaches these life-changing events from the perspective of personal responsibility and self-reliance. Only by taking control of your own state of readiness can you reduce the stress that comes with disaster awareness. Preparing yourself and your family for disasters big and small is an act of love. But how do you get started on that path? What is the roadmap for success? "The Preparedness Roadmap" approaches disaster readiness with a series of practical tasks laid out over twelve months. During each block of time, we cover the three most important aspects of your path: what to buy, what to learn, and how to improve your mindset. "The Preparedness Roadmap" takes a measured approach to improving your survival posture, one that recognizes success results from a slow and steady approach that builds and reinforces good habits (the marathon) and not quick all-consuming action resulting from fear (the sprint). "The Preparedness Roadmap" is written for both the novice prepper seeking an experienced guide on their journey and for the seasoned prepper looking for new inspiration and a tune-up. "The Preparedness Roadmap" is a must-have for the library of every household seeking to improve their position in this unstable world.

Modeling and Managing Interdependent Complex Systems of Systems

A comprehensive guide to the theory, methodology, and development for modeling systems of systems Modeling and Managing Interdependent Complex Systems of Systems examines the complexity of, and the risk to, emergent interconnected and interdependent complex systems of systems in the natural and the constructed environment, and in its critical infrastructures. For systems modelers, this book focuses on what constitutes complexity and how to understand, model and manage it.Previous modeling methods for complex systems of systems were aimed at developing theory and methodologies for uncoupling the interdependencies and interconnections that characterize them. In this book, the author extends the above by utilizing public- and private- sector case studies; identifies, explores, and exploits the core of interdependencies; and seeks to understand their essence via the states of the system, and their dominant contributions to the complexity of systems of systems. The book proposes a reevaluation of fundamental and practical systems engineering and risk analysis concepts on complex systems of systems developed over the past 40 years. This important resource: Updates and streamlines systems engineering theory, methodology, and practice as applied to complex systems of systems Introduces modeling methodology inspired by philosophical and conceptual thinking from the arts and sciences Models the complexity of emergent interdependent and interconnected complex systems of systems by analyzing their shared states, decisions, resources, and decisionmakers Written for systems engineers, industrial engineers, managers, planners, academics and other professionals in engineering systems and the environment,this text is the resource for understanding the fundamental principles of modeling and managing complex systems of systems, and the risk thereto.

Climate change justice and human rights  An African perspective

Populations in Africa are vulnerable to both the direct and indirect adverse effects of climate change that are of human rights significance. The urgency for states in Africa to implement climate interventions while they face developmental challenges, however, raises questions of ‘justice’ or ‘fairness’ between the developed and the developing states. Consequently, interrogating how the human rights paradigm may respond to negative implications of climate change and its ‘fairness’ is important as states continue to engage with the climate change standard setting. This edited volume critically interrogates human rights paradigm as an intervention to secure climate change justice for vulnerable populations; analyses regional protection against human rights consequences of climate change; and assesses emerging interventions based on domestic regulatory frameworks on climate change in selected states in Africa.

Disaster Management and Human Health Risk II

The increase in the number of large-scale natural disasters in recent years has been alarming.Major fl oods, hurricanes, earthquakes and many others have affected millions of people, with great destruction of property and loss of life, while forest fires, pipeline failures, and bombings have had equally devastating affects over a smaller scale. It is clear that future threats stem both from human failures and from terrorism, as well as from less predictable natural phenomena. The increased threats make the convening of the Second International Conference on Disaster Management and Human Health Risk important for the sharing of knowledge among experts on public health, security, and disaster management. This book contains their contributions to the conference. Topics covered will include Emergency preparedness; Risk mitigation; Natural disasters; Man-made disasters; Learning from disasters; Disaster analysis, monitoring and mitigation; Global risks and health; Pandemic and biological threats; Surveillance and early warning systems; Public health preparedness; Socio-economic issues; and Service sustainability.
