Decision aid models for Disaster Management and Emergencies
Response to natural disasters (e.g., floods, earthquakes) or technological (e.g., nuclear, Chemical) is an extreme complex process that involves severe time pressure, various kinds of uncertainties, and many stakeholders. The operation of complex systems involves human decision making based on available data and their interpretation. Information from the environment forms the basis for the state of knowledge of a decision maker. This state is referred to as situation awareness (SA).Lacking or inadequate SA may lead to poor decision making. Governments and humanitarian organizations often have to plan complex disaster responses based on forecasts or without having reliable field assessments. In this case there is chance of poor decision which may lead to serious consequences.
Decision aid models for Disaster Management and Emergencies, developed by Begoña Vitoriano, Javier Monter and Da Ruan can help governments and humanitarian organizations to improve their forecasts during disaster preparedness. Decision aid models can also facilitate collaboration and coordination between different parties involved in disaster management. High levels of uncertainty makes disasters management more complex. This complex challenge of disaster management can be better solved with the support of Decision aid model
