A Collaborative Multi-agency Platform for Building Resilient Communities

Lead Research Organisation: University of Salford
Department Name: Sch of Science,Engineering & Environment

Abstract

There is significant evidence of the growth of natural disasters on a global level. The Asia-Pacific region continues to be the world's most disaster prone region; it has many low-/middle-income countries and accounted for 47% of the world's 344 disasters in 2015 with 16,046 fatalities and reported economic damage in the region of US$ 5.1 Billion. In this context, the most disaster-prone sub-region is South Asia, recording 52 disasters and 14,647 deaths, representing 64% of the global fatalities, in 2015.

Scientific research has shown that disaster risks do not only exist because of the presence of a physical hazard; they are compounded by the presence of vulnerability. Therefore, there is an urgent need to shift our focus from pure emergency response and recovery towards a sustainable disaster mitigation framework that focuses on building resilience within a disaster prone area, involving government agencies and the local community to reduce the impact of a hazard. However, at present there is a lack of tools and methods available to agencies to enable them to come together to understand the underlying vulnerabilities of a disaster prone area and build resilience to reduce disaster impact on a community.

Digital technology has the potential for creating a collaboration environment for various agencies and communities to act collectively to reduce the impact of disasters. The goal of this project is to develop a Collaborative Multi-agency Platform that can be used for building resilient communities in disaster prone areas in low-/middle-income countries. The project will focus on the challenges faced by three countries: Malaysia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. These countries are frequently affected by a multitude of natural hazards including floods, landslides, cyclones, droughts, and earthquakes and have therefore been chosen as the focus for this research to capture broader set of disaster conditions and requirements common to low-/middle-income countries.

The project aims to address the following research questions: What is the nature of a resilience framework that will allow low-/middle-income countries to assess their vulnerabilities and resilience capabilities and take measures to build resilient communities? How can we enhance multi-agency collaboration within low-/middle-income countries? What changes are required in terms of technology, organizational structures and collaboration processes to enhance multi-agency collaboration? What are the characteristics of a collaboration platform that can support collective vulnerability assessment and reduction by multi-agencies? How can we establish a system dynamic model that can support the simulation of cascading effect on critical infrastructure systems due to a hazard? How can we construct a collaborative 3D environment based on near real-time 3D satellite data and analysis for supporting early response and damage assessment after a major disaster? In addressing itself to these questions, the project will lead to development of an advanced digital platform that can be used in low-/middle-income countries to strengthen their resilience capacities for disaster.

The project team is comprised of University of Salford (THINKlab & Centre for Disaster Resilience), the Universities of Moratuwa & Colombo (Sri Lanka), Tun Hussein Onn University (Malaysia) and the University of Peshawar (Pakistan). This team will be supported by a broad set of project partners, including industry and government agencies who are playing a key role in disaster resilience city agenda in UK, including: the Cabinet Office Civil Contingencies Secretariat, the Greater Manchester Resilience Forum, Rockefeller Foundation, Environment Agency, the Satellite Applications Catapult, Telespazio Vega Ltd and Secure Information Assurance Ltd. Similarly, in each partner country we have established industry and government agency stakeholder groups to engage and steer the project to achieve a greater impact.

Planned Impact

Key beneficiaries:

1. Disaster Management Agencies (DMAs) and authorities responsible for managing natural hazards in Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Pakistan will benefit. They will be members of both the Project and Local Steering Committees and will be actively engaged in the Co-creation Workshops and Dissemination Conferences. As the bodies responsible for coordinating pre- and post-disaster efforts, they will greatly benefit from the Collaborative Multi-agency Platform (CMP) and the Resilience Framework, which will be demonstrated through real life simulations. The platform will empower them with the tools for comprehensive risk assessment and preparedness, and for the early response stages of a disaster. As government representatives, these agencies will be able to feed insights back into central government departments, shaping policy decisions and influencing the behaviour change required for an effective wider implementation of the CMP protocols.

2. Local authorities attempting to promote wellbeing and improve the quality of life of communities in a range of cities within our sample frame: for instance, the Federation of Sri Lankan Government Authorities, the Malacca Historic City Council (Malaysia), and the Ministry of Rural Support and Local Government (Pakistan). They will be members of both the Project and Local Steering Committees. As with the DMAs, they will also be actively engaged in the Co-creation Workshops and ongoing dissemination. Engagement in the project will enable local authorities to streamline public service provision, improving their ability to meet selected KPI's (due to an enhanced understanding of capacity and vulnerability scales) and how best to target individual areas and communities via CMP.

3. The Civil Contingencies Secretariat of the Cabinet Office, the Greater Manchester Resilience Forum, the Environment Agency and the Rockefeller Foundation will directly benefit from this project. They will enhance their understanding as to how vulnerability is understood within a global context and how innovative tools emerging from this project could transform the way they support multi-agency collaboration in the UK in building resilience. They will be able to influence the disaster resilience work within the Contingencies Secretariat of the Cabinet Office, the Resilience Emergency Division of the Local Government Department and 42 UK Local Resilience Forums by deploying the results arising from this project.

4. IT companies will learn how to transform their offers to support disaster management: for instance, the Centre for Governance Innovation (Sri Lanka), Inaratech (Pakistan) Satellite Applications Catapult, Secure IA and Telespazio VEGA, will directly benefit from this project. They will gain a greater understanding of how best to refine satellite technologies, big data platform, data governance procedures, web-based solutions and visualisation applications to create products to serve the disaster management organisations world wide.

5. CMP will help the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center to understand local, national and regional risks and incorporate them in their risk reduction initiatives and disseminate the knowledge.

6. The academic and scientific communities will benefit from the new knowledge created in areas such as resilience frameworks, vulnerability and resilience modelling through system dynamics and multi-agency collaboration platforms.

7. Through the partnerships outlined above, statutory service providers (e.g. ambulance, police and fire) will benefit from the production of a more coordinated and cohesive preparedness and emergency response strategies via the CMP.

8. The ultimate beneficiaries will be vulnerable communities in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan and any other country facing natural disasters. A coordinated early response through CMP will save lives, protect infrastructure, and minimise disruption to communities.

Description The MOBILISE team has developed a web-based digital platform that allow distributed intelligence from various organizations and devices (satellite, sensors) to be brought together to understand the vulnerabilities, slow onset disasters, rapid onset disasters in an area and use that knowledge to take collective actions to reduce disaster risks as well as response better to disasters.

March 2018:
The web-based mobilise platform has been extended to support visualisation of 3D data as well as to support remote collaboration among stakeholders.
A simulation model that can predict people movement during a disaster has been developed. This simulation model is now being validated.
The first prorotype of a Resilience Framework that can measure community resilience has been developed.
A through survey of colaboration challenges in Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Malaysia has been conducted and documented.


2019: The MOBILISE platform has been redesigned and implemented in respond to the feedback from partners to produce a stable platform for supporting disaster mitigation, disaster preparedness and disaster response. This platform now allow agencies to share their data (hards, simulation, exposure, vulnerability) and use that intelligence to enhance their current processes. The interface has been designed to run on a touch table display allowing non-IT users to access various intelligence in an intuitive manner.
The research conducted through this project has resulted in a team-centric interface to support multi-agency collaboration involving range of agencies. Furthermore, research has now discovered the nature of a platform that can offer access to range of real-time and non-real time data from a range of sources to required to support various disaster management phases.
2020: The MOBILISE platform has been redesigned as a micro-service architecture in order to respond to the requirements from the end users. The platform now has the ability to easily integrate range of relevant disaster simulation modules and information sources to provider a richer information space for the decision makers. Within this context, the platform now has other modules such as integrated IoT module for capturing real-time hazard information, scenario generator to explore various disaster scenarios and their impact, early warning message generation module.
In addition, drone visualisation platform has been designed to bring real-time data from hazard zones as well as ti support build-back better post disaster construction projects.
Exploitation Route The digital platforms that are being developed by the MOBILISE team can be used by any organization in any country by linking their data sources to the MOBILISE platform.
We are planning to offer the MOBILISE platform under open license agreement for non commercial use by organisations in the ODA list. At present, the MOBILISE team has made the software available to Sri Lanka, Peshawar in Pakistan and Sarawak in Malaysia. We hope to sustain this open license model as the way of creating impact of our work in disaster prone countries.

Description March 2017: At this stage, the project has been able to raise the awareness of the importance of multi-agency collaboration in disaster risk reduction and disaster response in the chosen countries Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Malaysia. The local events conducted by the MOBILISE team has brought range of organizations together to show how the integrated knowledge from various stakeholders about cities can be utilized to reduce disaster risks and also response better to disasters. The current version of the MOBILISE digital platform has shown the art of the possibilities for a novel decision making platform for agencies involved in DRR. This platform has inspired many organizations in our partner countries and they are now looking into the integration of such as platform in their disaster risk reduction and disaster response activities, specially in Sri Lanka and Pakistan. March 2018: Several organisations in Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Malaysia are now in discussion with the MOBILISE team to use the technology platform that has been developed by the project. Furthermore, MOBILISE project has managed to create an Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Moratuwa in Sri Lanka to establish a sustainable model for strenghtening R&D activities in disaster risk reduction. This centre is comprised of ademics from Civil Engineering, Computer Science, IT, Mechanical Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Town & Country Planning etc. Furthermore, the MOBILISE project managed to establish strong links with National Disaster Managent Centre, NBRO and the MegaPolis Ministry to develop case studies and conduct action based reseach. In Malaysia, the team is now in discussion with the Sarawak Government to deploy the MOBILISE platform and other research outcome. Furthermore the MOBILISE team is in discussion with the Provisional Disaster Management Authority and the National Disaster Management Agency to deploy the MOBILISE platform within their institutons. 2019: This year the MOBILISE team managed to get serious commitment from the disaster management authorities in Sri Lanka, Peshawar (Pakistan) and Sarawak (Malaysia). As a result, the MOBILISE team has signed MOUs with the relevant authorities defining the nature of the engagement. Furthermore, the MOBILISE team has now produced a stable platform for these authorities to trial with in their organisations involving the relevant staff. Furthermore, in order to promote impact and strengthen engagement, the MOBILISE team has donated the MOBILISE platform, installed on a high-end computer and a touch table, to the Disaster Management Centre in Sri Lanka, National Building Research Organisation in Sri Lanka, University of Peshawar, Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) in Peshawar, Uninversity of Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia and Sarawak Government. The hardware component of this donation has been funded through the GCRF QR funds. This donation has now brought further momentum to the MOBILISE project since these authorities have now allocated their staff to work to further develop the MOBILISE platform for their specific needs. T The MOBILSE platform was launched in December 2019 at the NBRO's 10th Symposium on "Equitable Resilience' as well as at the MOBILISE conference on "Technology Enhanced Multi-agency Collaboration Towards Building Equitable Resilience". Similar project launch events are planned for Malaysia and Pakistan. The launch of the MOBILISE platform has now received interest from range of organisations in Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and generated discussion on how best to tailor this platform to suit their needs. The MOBILISE team is now in the process of conducting several system evaluation exercises to assess the suitability of the MOBILISE platform for disaster response, preparedness and mitigation with these authorities with the view to producing academic publications. 2020 : Although 2020 has been challenging due to COVID-19, the team has still been able to make impact any many fonts. Due to the continuous engagement with various disaster management agencies in Peshawar, Sarawak and Sri Lanka, the MOBILISE platform has now been recognised as an important tool by these agencies as an important tool for supporting intelligence based and collaborative approach to DRR and disaster response. As a result the key staff in PDMA in Peshawar and both NBRO and DMC in Sri Lanka are being trained to use the MOBILISE platform for DRR and disaster response. These organisations are now experimenting with the MOBILISE platform to explore new way of working in their disaster management practices. We hope that the uptake of the MOBILISE platform will increase once the pandemic situation is under control. Furthermore, In addition NGOs such as Oxfam and Lions Club have made serious commitment to work with the MOBILISE team to influence community-based disaster management. As a result, the MOBILISE team has managed to initiate community apps and strengthen community infrastructure to allow community participation as well as offer intelligence on emerging disasters to the community. This collaboration is now beginning to make impact in community-based disaster management.

Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact The MOBILISE team work with the National Building Research Organisation in Sri Lanka to improve the generation of early warnings to potential victims of disasters due to landslide. The new approach introduced the use of sensor technology for monitoring rain fall levels and then issue the early warning to the appropriate government organinisations and officials who are responsible for the safety of the citizens. The MOBILISE Early Warning system provides a semi-automated way to send the messages to the disaster management centre, District Secretariat, Divisional Secretariat and GN Officers in a seamless manner. The current system remove the inefficiencies of the traditional faxed based communication approach hence saving lives of emerging hazards.

Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact The MOBILISE team developed a platform for supporting the landslide mitigation projects conducted by the National Building Research Organisation in Sri Lanka. At present they are given the task of developing mitigation plans for 147 landslide areas in Sri Lanka. The MOBILISE team worked closely with the NBRO team to introduce the use of drone scanning, advanced visualisation and collaborative planning in developing their landslide mitigation plans. The overall environment allow the engineers to virtually inspect the sites remotely (without travelling to the sites during this pandemic situation) and conduct various engineering analysis such as soil cut & fill calculation and movement analysis. Furthermore, it offers stakeholders to come together to develop better landslide mitigation plans as well as remotely monitor the progress of the site remotely using drones. This approach has improved the safely of the engineers during this pandemic as well as led to the development of better mitigation plans that improves the safety of the citizens living in the landslide prone areas.
