On a global front, nations are drafting policies to reduce all kinds of losses due to untimely disasters. Australia developed a unique plan just to fight influenza. Under the Australian Health Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza (AHMPPI), the government increased access to antiviral vaccinations and included H5N1 avian influenza vaccines in the medical stores nationally. Moreover, the states were empowered with legislative powers which allowed them to execute bio-security measures in lines with the national quarantine policy.
Similarly, Brazil has recently drafted national legislations on urbanization, building construction and land usage in order to reduce risk and deaths (and loss) during earthquakes and other similar disasters. Contrast this with the situation in India, where most of the buildings, especially in the National Capital Region, ignore FSI (Floor Space Index) criteria and consequently can collapse easily during a quake. FSI is basically a system that defines a ratio between the built up areas allowed and plot area available; thus, more the FSI, taller is the building. But then, in order to accommodate more flats, builders ignore these ratios and construct skyscrapers without giving heed to any safety measures. Worse, evacuation is virtually impossible during emergencies and a collapse of one such building would create a domino effect in the entire vicinity. In the past, in Delhi and Mumbai, the collapse of multi storeyed buildings in crowded areas has resulted in hundreds of deaths. Read More....
