How can we interpret public disaster recovery or mitigation efforts in terms of cost-benefit analysis. Is it itself a vague topic?
- Manish Raj Gouli
Disaster Risk Recovery/ Mitigation efforts are one of the most spent sectors worldwide as large number of lives and infrastructures are ravaged worldwide by recurring hazards. Since recovery efforts are blended with multitude of factors including enthusiasm, awareness, dedications and helping hands(expertise, funds and endorsement of policies) it is not easy to interpret in terms of economy. Hence, what are the practices/methodologies worldwide to interpret D.R.R efforts in terms of cost benefit analysis?

Non-emergency "humanitarian" logistics, how to define it?
- Jesus Gonzalez-Feliu
I am nowadays working on questions of logistics related to malnutrition decrease in Emerging countries. I am trying to search to which field those researches can be related and I found that almost all humanitarian logistics works deal with disasters or emergencies, even during the disaster or post-disaster, but I have difficulties to find non-emergency works. Can someone help me to find a terminology to name this logistics field and know if some authors worked on this. I found a few works on social improvement or social welfare logistics, but the field does not seem to be unified and maybe the terminology is different. Thank you in advance
