Recovery from flooding and other natural disasters can take years. The frequency and severity of events such as flooding, fires and landslides are increasing.
As of yesterday, there are 2,000 homes on evacuation order, 1,300 on evacuation alert and more than 4,000 people already displaced from their homes due to flooding in British Columbia.
If we are to prepare for and mitigate these types of climate changing events we need a different framework such as the SENDAI framework for disaster risk reduction.
