GCRF Resilience to Coupled Human-Natural Multi-hazards Network

Lead Research Organisation: VIGMR
Department Name: Economic Geology - Mineral materials

Abstract

The Network will focus on the need and ability to evaluate and increase the resilience to natural-human hazards of increasingly vulnerable populations in the hyper-expanding margins of cities, specifically in Vietnam and more generally in SE Asia.

The focus is aimed at the GCRF challenge "resilience to environmental shocks and change", and directly supports key SDG targets within SDG 11 (Sustainable Communities and Cities) and the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). The Network will tackle specific targets 11.5 and 11.B, which respectively address the need to significantly reduce the loss of lives and livelihoods caused by disasters while protecting vulnerable populations, and substantially increase the number of cities and human settlements adopting and implementing integrated policies and plans towards mitigation and adaptation to climate change, resilience to disasters, and to develop and implement holistic disaster risk management at all levels. Similar challenges arise in SDG 13.1 (climate change and its impacts).

The environment within which coupled natural-human hazards occur and the people and institutions that are impacted by hazardous events comprise a complex physical and social system characterized by interactions across a range of time and spatial scales. Understanding how to increase the system resilience to adverse events means bringing all vested groups to the same table at the same time. This strategy allows Network members to both inform be informed about each other's perspectives, methodologies, and language, to understand and reveal assumptions and to generate a common articulation of a resilience plan or framework.

We will do this by developing a Network constituency that includes: researchers, decision and policy makers, managers (land-use, disaster, etc.), planners (city, rural, etc.), community leaders (particularly minority and historically under-represented communities), developers (private sector), investment banks, re/insurance, small and medium business enterprises (SMEs), and DRR specialists. And within "researchers", we include the fields of complex systems, environmental historical analysis, cultural policy, socio-economic processes, behavioural sciences, psycho-visual arts, ecosystem services, environmental physical science, etc. This marriage of disciplines allows us to cross cultural contexts in both the vulnerable population and in the institutions that have responsibility for the management of natural hazards and - significantly - institutions responsible for ostensibly non-hazard issues (e.g. energy, industrial development, etc.). The long time-scales to be examined combined with the broad range of stakeholders will enable us to examine the role of culture and policy and trade-offs evident in the need for economic development.

The Network will add value to existing knowledge largely through the integration of researchers and stakeholders and through the atypically broad church of research disciplines to be engaged, which we demonstrate in the initial and committed membership.

We will deliver our objectives through three workshops (and related activities). The first will provide a forensic examination of selected disasters that will serve as the context of the second critical workshop that allows Network members to effectively teach other members about their perspectives, methodologies, language and assumptions. A third workshop will present a synthesis (a road-map that articulates a common resilience approach or plan) to high-level decision makers from relevant cities in SE Asia.

Planned Impact

This proposal intends to deliver impact from the outset, principally by bringing decision-makers and disaster managers to the same table as a broad church of science and non-science researchers. The host institution (Vietnam Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources, VIGMR) is home to the Center for Geohazards Research and is under contract with the Hanoi Peoples Committee (a high-level governance organisation in Hanoi) to mitigate and minimize risks that could become catastrophic for Hanoi. The Co-Director's institution (British Geological Survey) is working closely with various SE Asia countries (and other countries in the global south) on hazard-related issues, in each case closely allied with government research departments, In addition, initial and committed members of the proposed Network come from both academia and government stakeholder communities, and results therefore will have a short pipeline to decision-makers. We intend to engage Network members from similar groups in related SE Asian (mega)cities.

Impact will be generated continuously through the Network activities, which are primarily three coupled workshops, starting with a forensic examination of selected disasters (and examined under relatively long, decadal and longer) time-scales, this to develop the role of culture and policy in the impact of hazard events. That workshop will inform the core activity, which is a novel "teach each other" workshop, provided BY and FOR the broad range of Network members. This strategy allows Network members to both inform be informed about each other's perspectives, methodologies, and language, to understand and reveal assumptions and to generate a common articulation of a resilience plan or framework. A final synthesis workshop will present a co-designed road-map to high-level decision-makers and disaster managers from relevant SE Asian cities.

Results and Impact "From Pollution to Solution: A Global Assessment of Marine Litter and Plastic Pollution" Oct 21, 2021 organized by UNEP
Plastics are considered as Human hazards, the largest, most harmful and most persistent fraction of marine litter, accounting for at least 85 per cent of total marine waste.
The 'From Pollution to Solution' assessment examines the magnitude and severity of marine litter and plastic pollution and reviews existing solutions and actions. It provides a comprehensive update on current research (and knowledge gaps) concerning direct impacts on marine life, the risks posed to ecosystems and human health, and social and economic costs.
The assessment describes and quantifies, where possible, the sources of marine litter, including plastics and microplastics, and their direct and indirect pathways into and within the oceans. It also discusses improvements in relevant monitoring systems, observational technologies, and analytical methods. The assessment provides an overview of the potential effectiveness of different approaches and policies, including mitigating actions, and a range of economic, technological and legislative solutions.

Any effective strategy to tackle plastic pollution must begin with a comprehensive understanding of the situation. In the past years, around 10 stakeholders across public, academia, development partners and NGOs have been leading the way to develop different assessment methodologies and conduct multiple surveys to diagnose and monitor the plastic waste issues in Viet Nam at national and municipal scale. Experiences have shown that the alignment on metrics and measurement methodologies are key to drive informed actions, monitor performance against national plastic reduction targets, and ultimately tackle plastic pollution issue at source,
The workshop aims to provide an overview of existing and under-development methodologies for plastic pollution assessment. The event will also open a forum for discussion on knowledge gaps and challenges, as well as stipulate further coordination effort required toward harmonized metrics and suitable methodologies for the measurement and monitoring of plastic pollution.
Participants of the workshop are experts, practitioners and members of the NPAP from the government agencies, research institutions, international organizations and NGOs working on solid waste management, particularly in plastic waste reduction in Viet Nam.

Earth's climate is changing and Asia is expected to be impacted severely with rising temperatures, droughts, changes in precipitation, rising sea levels, and loss of natural capital. Rising temperatures in the future will drastically change our lives impacting the way we live and work, grow our food, build infrastructure and interact with our environment. Geospatial technologies help address adverse effects of climate change, including reducing human losses from climatic disasters, by informing decisions, policies and actions. Use of geospatial technologies has grown exponentially over recent years and these technologies will continue to provide innovative ways of collecting data, analyzing data, and applying the insights to inform decision-making.
This webinar series aims to provide a platform for organizations working to address adverse effects of climate change to come together and share experiences and ideas on 1) strengthening the use of existing geospatial technologies for climate change applications and 2) increasing the uptake of such technologies with decision makers in the region.
About SERVIR-Mekong: SERVIR-Mekong is one of the five hubs under SERVIR - a joint development initiative of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). SERVIR-Mekog is implemented by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) and its consortium partners: Deltares, Spatial Informatics Group (SIG), and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). It uses geospatial data to enhance climate change adaptation and mitigation and helps address the regional challenge of managing shared natural resources.

Results and Impact Losses from extreme weather events increased globally over the last decades and are expected to further increase in the future as a consequence of climatic and socio-economic changes. These losses arise from a complex interplay between human and environmental systems, whose outcomes are often hard to predict. Yet, developing plans and policies for managing risks from extreme weather and climate events is an urgent and paramount task for societies. Risk quantification and management increasingly rely on the use of model simulations of various kinds (e.g., natural catastrophe models, agent-based models, system dynamic models, etc.), and of a diverse set of techniques (e.g., extreme value analysis, scenario analysis, exploratory modeling and analysis, etc.). The value of these tools for risk quantification and management improved over the years due to increasing research, data availability and computational power. Yet, there are still significant gaps that offer many research opportunities, including - but not limited to - a better treatment of uncertainties, an improved integration of feedback mechanisms between climatic and socio-economic changes, and the need of expanding models from single to multi-hazards and -vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, systemic risks arising from the interaction of phenomena within complex and highly interconnected human-environmental systems are poorly understood, let alone modeled. Systemic risks do not often have a track record which can be used to estimate probabilities and expected losses or calibrate models, which creates methodological challenges. With these types of risks, commonly used statistical techniques may fall short and, thus, new methods to quantify and understand the systemic nature of risk are needed.

With the aim of addressing these challenges, the Risk Modeling and Insurance Working Group of the Knowledge Action Network on Emergent Risks and Extreme Events (Risk KAN) organizes a three-day workshop to bring together scientists and practitioners in the field of modeling risk in human and environmental systems.
