截至2020年6月中,全球2019冠狀病毒疾病(COVID-19)染病人數已突破8百萬人,而死亡人數則超過45萬,雖然全球多個地方的新增個案已受到控制,而在本港更多時沒有新增本地個案,但外出時需要戴口罩的措施似乎仍需維持一段日子。今年,相信世界各地都需要過一個戴口罩的夏季!
The Global Risks Report 2020 Cover - WEF

At a critical time when collective action is essential to correct the failures of climate change, biodiversity loss and infectious disease, nations are more fragmented than ever. The 15th edition of the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report has been published as the world stands at the brink of unprecedented climate-related emergencies. The report calls for a multi-stakeholder approach, cautioning that opting to ride out the current period in the hope that the global system will “snap back” runs the risk of missing crucial windows to address pressing challenges.

Four phases of disaster management are well-established in disaster related literature. The phases are emergency relief, recovery and reconstruction, mitigation, and preparedness. Long-term recovery is the process of restoring a community to a stable and functional state. An effective long-term recovery support to disaster-impacted communities enables the community to restore, redevelop and revitalise the environmental, social, economic fabric of the community and build resilience. Recovery should begin during response and aim to return the disaster-impacted area to pre-disaster status, or even better than before.
