Disaster Management - We respond to disasters around the world. Our responses are consisted of Disaster Risk Reduction, Emergency Relief, Rehabilitation Recovery.

Eight months passed since the earthquake, Bellanda’s family is receiving all benefits possible from the World Vision funded-programs.

Disaster Management
Children, women and young people suffer disproportionately in disasters. Therefore, World
Vision affirms that a special focus is placed on the most vulnerable people in communities,
whilst all those affected by disasters must be active participants throughout the World Vision’s Disaster Management processes. Since disasters greatly interrupt developing countries’
sustainable growth and poverty eradication, World Vision puts Disaster Management as one of its top priorities and strives to respond to disasters around the world.
Six Steps to Disaster Management
  1. 1. Early Warning
  2. 2. Preparedness
  3. 3. Disaster Mitigation
  4. 4. Response
  5. 5. Rehabilitation
  6. 6. Transition
The three major components of
World Vision’s disaster management are:

- Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)
- Humanitarian & Emergency Affairs
- Rehabilitation
Disaster Risk Reduction
In 2009, World Vision created a Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)to minimize vulnerabilities,
hazards and risks throughout a society, to avoid (prevent) or limit (mitigate and prepare for)
adverse impacts of hazards, whilst building resilience within the broad context of sustainable development.

From the decades’ of experiences in the past, World Vision believes that development
programs and humanitarian aids can be most effective when the level of vulnerability and
fragility to disaster decreases. Therefore, World Vision has been applying DRR to all parts of Disaster Management WV Korea conducts DRR mostly in Asia-Pacific where natural
disasters frequently occur and also in Africa where emergencies turn into chronic states. WV Korea’s DRR includes programs like providing education and training for community
members, securing resources and establishing a committee at the community level for
emergencies.
Emergency Response
World Vision helps to save lives in many ways. One of the most effective ways is our
emergency response. When there are emergency situations, World Vision is committed to
respond swiftly and effectively to reduce the impact of humanitarian emergencies and save
lives. Not only saving lives, but also World Vision is committed to long-term rehabilitation;
we work with communities to mitigate disasters and to increase their ability to cope with
future emergencies.

Declaration of Emergency
World Vision has created a set of criteria to guide decisions regarding the magnitude (size) of emergency and the selection of the response model WV will use to respond. The magnitude of emergencies may be designated category I, II, or III.

Criteria to confirm magnitude of emergency

Category I Category II Category III
Emergency manageable at
the national level
Emergency that needs to be addressed by the whole
continent where the
emergency occurred
Serious emergency that the whole world must intervene
  • Up to 100,000 people are
    affected or potentially affected by the emergency.
  • ADP/WV activities are directly affected/threatened.
  • Livelihoods and development
    potential are threatened.
  • 100,000 to 1 million people (or
    25% to 50% of the population)
    are affected or potentially
    affected by the emergency.
  • Crude mortality rate up to
    1/10,000 day and/or
    Under-5 mortality rate up to
    2/10,000/day or projected
    increase level of mortality
    compared to what is consider-
    ed normal for the country.
  • Over 1 million people (or over
    50% of the population) are
    affected or potentially affected by the emergency.
  • High immediate or projected death rates (crude mortality rate more than 1/10,000/day, Under-5 mortality rate higher than
    2/10,000/day).

Criteria to confirm magnitude of emergency

No Response WV decides not to launch an operation, increase activities
or engage partners to respond to an emergency.
The situation is not ready for response, but remains volatile and a heightened level of monitoring is required.
Partnering Response WV is not operational in disaster management but wishes
to be involved and would like to work through other
organizations.
National Response The national office in a country where the disaster occurred responds to the situation.
Global Response Global responses are needed where national offices do not have the capacity to fully respond to the disaster.
This may be due to the size and/or nature of the emergency, the emergency may be in a remote region, or the office
needs to draw on extra capacity
Recovery & Rehabilitation
After emergency response stage, rehabilitation activities begin in order to rebuild social,
physical, financial, and natural capital. World Vision often remains in each location with a
continuing commitment to rehabilitation and transition, enabling communities to rebuild and move forward to development context. Our rehabilitation projects intervene following sectors; water and sanitation, hygiene promotion, health and nutrition, education, children protection,
economic development, agriculture, and road and housing reconstruction.
