Comments: Most points made but let down a little by the map which could have been
done a little better and also should have included the map in the presentation showing
where your island was in the Phil (You had emailed it to me, so why not include in
discussion?!!)

Assessment Title: Assignment 1
Submission Date: 4th November (Presentations 19th November – 23rd November)
Weighting: 30% (marked out of 100)
Type: Groups of 2 or 3, in-class presentation and discussion
Length: 20 minutes

Learning Outcomes assessed:
1. Demonstrate detailed knowledge and understanding of humanitarian logistics and the key stages of disaster
relief (mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery).
2. Apply a range of practical, transferable and problem‐solving skills when planning and conducting logistics for
disaster relief and humanitarian aid.

TASK:

Many countries around the world are at risk of suffering from prospective disasters. Before a disaster occurs,
many countries undertake the processes of mitigation and preparation in order to reduce the impact on both
people’s lives and on infrastructure.

In pairs or threes, you are required to present and discuss the following:
A. Disaster relief has 4 key stages. For this assignment discuss and fully explain:
(i) What is meant by the term “mitigation”
(ii) What is meant by the term “preparedness”
B. Provide a detailed map of a fictitious island belonging to a predetermined country, showing the location
of at least three main urban areas, and main transport infrastructure (port, airport and main road links).
The location of any relevant mitigation and preparation measures that have been taken should also be
shown on this map.
C. By utilizing a range of problem solving skills provide and discuss at least two examples of the measures
taken on the island to both mitigate and prepare for a prospective disaster.

To score well in this assignment you should consider the economic capability of the country to undertake the
suggested measures.

You should cover all requirements and expand on them in full. You should be able to communicate your message
effectively and failure to do this will result in a loss of marks. Each group member should speak for an equal
length of time and be able to answer questions about the whole presentation. Each student will be graded
individually on their performance.
