A year has passed after the Hurricane Sandy, which was the second deadliest Hurricane in NYC. In the Question and Answers section, questions regarding the preparedness and evacuation process of the hurricane, the current political situation and the link between the recent shut down of the government and its effect on the victims of Sandy, the individual’s efforts in handling disasters like Sandy, the search for a better coordination and the likelihood to avoid unwanted issues were raised and answers to such questions were sought.
The outline states Hurricane Sandy caused the New York and New Jersey regions between $20 billion and $50 billion in economic damage from power outages, fuel shortages, and transportation shutdown alone. The plan emphasizes streamlining review processes to reduce the time needed for a risk-mitigating action to pass the scrutiny of multiple agencies, and to get checks to homeowners faster after an emergency. Along with providing billions of dollars towards building regional risk management programs, the task force will host an international design competition to source resilient rebuilding ideas to Sandy-impacted areas and has already begun to promote the distribution of a Sea Level Rise planning tool based on climate change data. In order to raise awareness on climate change and disaster management, highlight disaster management planning, explore effective ways to respond to natural disasters during and after emergency and to handle the emergency situations, enable preparedness for public service providers and inform the public of the response and recovery processes, Peace Islands Institute (PII) held a discussion panel on October 28, titled “A Year After Hurricane Sandy: Climate Change and Disaster Management”. Narinder Kakar started his speech indicating that the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy provided us the opportunity to review the link between climate change and how it affected hurricanes like Sandy.
Thomas Chandler talked about the historical tracks of other hurricanes, and mentioned the unusual track of Sandy and the very wide area it affected. Mehmet Kilic drew the attention of the participants to how such disasters could turn into an opportunity to build and strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and friendship as he mentioned that during Hurricane Sandy, PII had a twinning event between Muslim and Jewish teens who gathered and prepared meals for Sandy victims at Masbia Soup Kitchen in Brooklyn in partnership with the UJA Federation of New York.
Kilic argued that, besides the government officials, non-governmental organizations and civilians in particular should also take an active role in disaster management and participate in the process of helping out victims before-during and after natural disasters.

Kilic argued that, besides the government officials, non-governmental organizations and civilians in particular should also take an active role in disaster management and participate in the process of helping out the victims before, during and after natural disasters. He stressed the importance of disaster awareness at schools, and both at local and global levels and added that it was easy to judge; however, the NGO’s should work in cooperation with government officials in helping the victims of disasters. Cetiner talked about disaster management and how KYM handled disasters through dividing the process into parts such as; before disaster, during disaster and after disaster. He highlighted the need to have supplies in our houses as emergency wouldn’t come just once and the need for constant power during and after the natural disasters.


Mehmet Kilic, Director of the Center for Global Affairs at PII, made the welcoming remarks and thanked the guests for their consideration and participation at the panel discussion on Hurricane Sandy. He also inquired the links between capacity, competence, and capability and their definitions in terms of preparedness for natural disasters. The added benefit recycling center for dropping it off rather more crucial to America's future security.
Given all of the misinformation that surrounds events such as the hurricane, the list is small. Government's Federal Emergency Management Agency, known commonly by the acronym FEMA, is cracking down on false information and rumor circulating on the internet about Hurricane Sandy and related recovery efforts.
Andrew Martin talked about his experience in Sandy and risk analysis, flood insurance studies and flood insurance maps that played a crucial role in terms of both preparedness at local level and recovery issues. Says Donovan, “Local governments and community leaders are the frontlines of disaster recovery, and it is the job of the Federal Government to have their back by supporting their efforts, providing guidance when necessary, and delivering resources to help them fulfill their needs.
The task force report also stated that in 2013, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) estimated that 15 to 25 percent of properties in Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) in the Northeast were insured for flood losses when Sandy hit. He emphasized the need to inquire the link between Hurricane Sandy in particular and the public policy on disaster to illustrate how we could get more prepared.
Chandler indicated the fact that sea level would continue to rise this century and impact storms like Hurricane Sandy. Cetiner talked about disaster management and how KYM handled disasters through dividing the process into parts such as before disaster, during disaster and after disaster.
He highlighted the need to have supplies in our houses, as emergency wouldn’t come just once and the need for constant power during and after the natural disasters.
Kakar also introduced the concepts of “mitigation” which involved the strategies to reduce green house effect, and “adaptation” which involved the steps to be taken to reduce the effects of disasters, improve preparedness and establish a framework for actions at local and national level as tools for addressing the issue of climate change. She mentioned about the increase in rainfall in NY which is an implication for flooding, and indicated that the real danger lied in the change of rainfall frequency and intensity. He talked about the PII’s relief efforts in Mississippi Flood, Alabama Tornado and Hurricane Irene in US, and also abroad in a variety of regions and countries including Haiti, Japan, Africa, Israel and Turkey.


As Hurricane Sandy roared up the East Coast, IPS initiated its disaster management plan – and it proved its value. He mentioned the ongoing works carried out by FEMA, including the establishment of a brand new web portal, meetings with public officials, collaboration among non-governmental organizations and the report released in June, which involved a special initiative to recovery from disasters.
Cetiner mentioned about the Hurricane Sandy awareness in Turkey and the relief efforts of KYM which also involved the collaboration with the Salvation Army.
Narinder Kakar, Permanent Observer of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to the United Nations, the panel hosted distinguished speakers including Dr. Martin described the situation as “before and after Sandy” and inquired the question of what kind of information could be provided for people about disaster issues. A federal task force put forward a post-Hurricane Sandy resiliency plan, which includes 69 policy initiatives protecting energy and fuel distribution, cell service and infrastructure in a future where severe coastal storms are the norm. Kakar addressed five consequences of the climate change, which involved the increase in heat waves, increase in drought, increase in the number, and intensity of very strong national disasters, sea level rise and higher temperature. Indicating that the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlighted the need to take measures to protect the climate system for the benefit of the present and future generations, and the significant gap between mitigation steps to reduce emissions and the efforts to decrease the current global temperatures, Mr. The Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force is chaired by Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and involves the heads of more than 20 U.S.
Kakar also mentioned the IPCC report released last month, which have concluded that human influence and activity has been the dominant cause for the global warming particularly since the mid of the 20th century. Sutton talked about the difficulty to address one particular weather event to be responsible for climate change.
