Dear Friends,

I am writing this from Kerala, a state of India which was devastated due to
the recent flood. The news was picked up by international media and so I
assume that many of you are aware of the details. I am not going to repeat
what many of you would have already know.

As a Communication Designer I was already involved in the aspect of
communicating risk. We, a set of friends from various domains like Disaster
management, Earth studies, Coastal zone development, Ocean studies and
meteriological department had got togethor and started discussing how we
can prevent and manage disasters which have become a regular feature during
this decade in India.

Kerala itself had been hit by OKHI cyclone some six months back. The
victims were the most vulnerble fishing community as the cyclone hit the
coastal regions of the Arabian seas where the fishing community lives. The
fishing community is a marginalised group and so the news did not get the
same attention in national or international media.

I was already associated with a few NGO groups and researchers and that is
how I got involved. We were developing some signaling systems for fisherman
who venture out to sea. After OKHI our attention shifted out to large scale
disasters. It became obvious that many of the disasters can be forwarned
and if properly communicated, the damage can be much contained, prevented
or controlled to a large extend. The distruction to lives an livestock can
be easily reduced if not fully prevented.

Scientific data, climate and weather forcasts, technological tools,
machines and methods are available for communicating all potential and
imminent disasters and risk to all stakeholders. What is missing is a
proper system, a model which can be developed and implimented to
effectively communicate to all concerned.

This is what I would like to develop.
As a state Kerala did not have an effective disaster managment plan nor a
communication system in place which could be harnessed when disaster
struck. We are thinking of developing a model which could be implemented
here in Kerala.

Would there be people in the group who could share me resources which they
have developed in similar circumstances. Can experts in this mailing list
direct me to similar studies/models designed, developed and implemented
elsewhere.

I am looking for all kinds of resources and materials which could help me
design a system for the state.  I am really looking for experience of
Designers who attempted similar projects..

Kindly share me your thoughts, inputs.

Thanks and regards,
