Summary of key recommendations
  • All actors should ensure that the people of Haiti have a central role in the process of reconstruction and that reconstruction is equitable
  • Those delivering assistance on the ground should immediately work to coordinate within the UN established system and with the Haitian government.
  • The UN and the US government are trying to ensure that there is adequate fuel to support the relief effort. Fuel supply will remain a concern for humanitarian agencies in the near term. In consultation with NGOs, the UN should establish a system to determine who receives fuel, for what purposes and in what priority.
  • The Haitian government, UN and international military actors must work together to improve the security situation, pre-ems reconstruction and development with complete debt forgiveness, aid in the form of grants not loans and a "pro-poor" approach that prioritises livelihoods and sustainable development led by Haitians from the start.

Generations of Californians have been "putting down roots" along one of the world’s most famous faults-the San Andreas

Further south along the San Andreas fault, from San Bernardino through the Coachella Valley to the Salton Sea, over 300 years have passed since the last major earthquake (around 1680). Another major earthquake is likely to happen on this section of the fault within our lifetime, and will shake all of Southern California. A study led by the U.S. Geological Survey describes in great detail the extensive damage and casualties that result from such an earthquake, and recommends many ways to keep this natural disaster from becoming a catastrophe.

While the San Andreas is most likely to be the source of our largest earthquakes, there are hundreds of other faults throughout Southern California that could also cause damaging earthquakes. Some may happen before the next San Andreas earthquake and could be even more destructive if they occur directly beneath densely populated areas.

This handbook is a resource for living in earthquake country. It provides information about why we should care about earthquakes in Southern California, what we should do to be safe and reduce damage, and also what we should know about earthquake basics
