“Has Asia Been Resilient to Natural Disaster Events and Terrorist Attacks? A Debate on theIssues”


During the past few years, natural disasters including the major earthquakes in China and Pakistan,rnthe Tsunami floods of Indonesia, the firestorms of Australia, and terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India andrnBali, Indonesia have caused major loss of life, injury and significant loss of property in Asia. Howrnresilient have these Asian and Pacific countries been to these events?rnDuring the same period, insurgent attacks in Iraq, subway bombings in London, fire attacks on the cityrnof Paris, and continued threats of terrorists throughout the world have placed life at risk due to terroristrnactivities. Also hurricanes and destruction in New Orleans, LA and the Gulf Coast region of the UnitedrnStates have caused major loss of life, injury and significant loss of property. How does resilience inrnthese communities compare to similar communities in Asia?rnTerrorism is the systematic use of violence and force as a means of coercion through fear andrnintimidation. As we have seen since World War II and experienced first hand since the terrorist attacksrnof September 11, 2001, the calculated murder of political personalities has given way to the randomrnkilling of innocent people and civilian populations.rnNatural disasters are perhaps even more threatening. Are we building systems and responding in arnway that permits these communities to respond properly and be resilient to these kinds of events?rnHow can the discipline of systems engineering assist in preparing for, responding to, recovering fromrnand mitigate against the risks of natural disasters and terrorist events?rnSince September 11, 2001, INCOSE through its Anti-Terrorism International Working Group (ATIWG)rnhas focused the principles, techniques, and practices of systems engineering on how to reduce andrneradicate international terrorism. We have taken this opportunity to expand emergency preparednessrnefforts to natural disasters as well.rnThrough the ATIWG sponsoring of panels at previous INCOSE symposia (2002-2008), writing papersrnfor publication (2003), a tutorial (2004), an Insight Issue (2006) and working group activities, thernsystems engineering community has discussed the application of collaborative engineeringrnenvironments, simulation and modeling, religion, system solutions to defend against terrorism,rnpsychology, and root causes of terrorism to address the vulnerabilities of systems as well as the attackrnresponses to threats.rnThis panel continues the INCOSE application of systems engineering to these international problemsrnby discussing the proper responses, recovery and resiliency of society and the systems it builds tornnatural disaster events and terrorist attacks.......
