Social Vulnerability Metrics, Measures and Datasets - Applications for Emergency Management Decisions Models

The concept of social vulnerability is theoretically framed by a multi-disciplinary litany of case studies and research on specific hazard events, their impacts, and outcomes. Social vulnerability to hazards refers specifically to a lack of ability for individuals and communities to adequately prepare for, respond to, and rebound from environmental hazards.  Although the "science" of vulnerability is relatively new, the utility of social vulnerability measures for targeting scarce disaster preparedness, response, and recovery resources to those most impacted and distressed is clear.  This presentation showcases a variety of cases where social vulnerability measures have been utilized to aid decision makers before, during, and after disasters.

Presenter:
Dr. Christopher Emrich - Endowed Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Public Administration, School of Public Administration, University of Central Florida (UCF Coastal)

The recorded session and transcript are available.
