CCCP Proposal for Paris Climate Talks
DISASTER MANAGEMENT IN CROATIA

What follows is the proposal by the CCCP Disaster Management team to the Croatian government ahead of the Paris meeting on climate change.  As will be shown below, the proposal is for the government to enact a new law regulating disaster management activities on the lowest level of local self-government.

1. For the upcoming climate talks in Paris, the Croatian government should make disaster management (upravljanje kriznim situacijama) a legal requirement at the lowest level of local self-government (lokalna samouprava) in the country.  In particular, the lowest units of local self-government should have an office for disaster management (ured za upravljanje kriznim situacijama), which should make plans in preparation of the weather-related disasters that are most likely in the geographic area they occupy.

 

2. Each office responsible for disaster management should be trained in the disaster management cycle, which includes four phases: preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation.  This cycle should be repeated indefinitely.  The community facing disasters should continually learn in the process and adjusts to changing conditions it faces.

 

The most important aspect of disaster management is that it differs from one unit of local self-government to another.  Therefore, each and every unit of local self-government should address disaster management separately and independently.  Cooperation between neighboring units should be encouraged, but only at their own initiative.  The only common feature is the set of general principles of disaster management, which can be found on the World Wide Web in many languages including English and Croatian:

3. In addition to the capital, Zagreb, there are 127 cities or towns (gradovi) and 428 municipalities (opcine) in Croatia.  City quarters (gradske cetvrti) and local boards (mjesni odbori) exist in some but not all cities or towns and municipalities.  In addition, there are 6757 settlements (naselja) in the country, which are organized within municipal borders.

 

The new law promulgated by the Croatian government should ensure the formation and continual operation of disaster-management offices at the lowest level of local self-government.  In particular, it should be instituted in each of 6757 settlements in the country with the assistance of 556 city or town and municipal offices that contain them.

 

4. The Croatian government should ensure that all disaster-management offices are properly trained and equipped for disaster management in their units of local self-government.  This obligation should be part of the proposed law.  For this purpose, the government of Croatia should establish a central office responsible for disaster management, which should coordinate, oversee, and support the operation of all offices in the units of local self-government in the country while simultaneously ensuring their independence.

The CCCP team has received a message from a representative of Omaha Outdoors (http://www.omahaoutdoors.com) concerning disaster preparedness. The message included a useful link to a large number of websites entitled “Ultimate List of Disaster Preparedness Resources”:

 

http://www.omahaoutdoors.com/blog/ultimate-list-disaster-preparedness-resources

 

The pages in question concern a wide spectrum of subjects, some of which have a distinctly American flavor:

 

Emergency Planning

Food, Medical and General Supplies

How to Find and Make a Shelter

Survival Skills & Protecting Yourself

Guns and Other Weapons

Acquiring New Survival Skills

Hunting and Foraging for Food

 

At any rate, the list is surely of value to CCCP, whence this extension of the page on disaster management. Such lists will undoubtedly grow in the future, and the Omaha Outdoors website is worth revisiting from time to time in search of new items.

Odličan prilog. Uz sve napore da se nastajanje ureda za upravljanje kriznim situacijama zakonski regulira, to bi moglo dugo ostati nerealizirano. Zato bi trebalo (za svaki slučaj) osmisliti kampanju promoviranja da to lokalci trebaju učiniti dragovoljno, zbog sebe. Kratki priručnik kako se to može raditi bio bi koristan bonus. Zoran
