Hi Chris,

A couple of questions on the DRMC:

1. Where would you consider technological interventions fitting into the recovery stage? In our studies we have previously learnt that situations like disasters often create ideal situations for technology to break through. If you’re building back better i’m thinking technological advances will be critical.

2. Restoration of built environment – could this be restoration and optimisation of the built environment or something that refers to the ‘build back better’ aspect? Referring to the above question technological and planning or maybe even fundamental economic interventions would be critical to building back better.

One on humanitarian response (coming from my work background) – What role can employers play, or should be expected to play in disaster response, particularly in the psychosocial hazard response? Are there any good responses provided by business/corporations you’re aware of ?
