What humanitarian need is being addressed?

Approximately 3,000 families are residing in areas that have been declared as high risk to liquefaction by  relevant government agencies, due to very strong earthquakes accompanied by cascading hazards ground shaking, liquefaction and fire. The exposed population are not aware of the cascading hazards, which are compounded by the non-availability of localised mitigation initiatives that could lead to family safety.

What is the innovative solution and how will it improve existing humanitarian practice?

Data from national government agencies about liquefaction derived from hazard maps are merely fed to local government units. But maps do not speak for themselves.

The proposed solution is to improve existing humanitarian practice : an innovative communication/learning channel to local communities for enhanced liquefaction awareness. It is an evidenced-based liquefaction awareness pursuit utilizing knowledge–attitude-practice surveys, liquefaction demonstration kits, awareness seminars, town watching, and soil investigation/soil analysis that would galvanize communities into action to create community-driven mitigation efforts and family safety.

What are the expected outcomes?

The creation of more community-driven mitigation efforts and family safety.
