Impacts et coûts indi­rects des inon­da­tions sur les sinistrés Impacts et coûts indirects des inondations sur les sinistrés

Les inon­da­tions et leur ges­tion sus­ci­tent de nom­breux événe­ments stres­sants pour les sin­istrés lors de la péri­ode du rétab­lisse­ment, tels que l’insécurité finan­cière et la dif­fi­culté de com­pos­er avec la com­plex­ité des démarch­es à entre­pren­dre. Ces stresseurs sec­ondaires entraî­nent des con­séquences sur la san­té des sin­istrés ain­si que des coûts soci­aux et économiques pour la société.

Recov­er col­lec­tive­ly from crises: the case of Que­bec City Recover collectively from crises: the case of Quebec City

To recov­er from a cri­sis, cities, like oth­er lev­els of gov­ern­ment, typ­i­cal­ly need to deploy extra­or­di­nary mea­sures, adopt col­lec­tive approach­es, break down inter­nal silos, and strength­en coor­di­na­tion capa­bil­i­ties. But how are these new prac­tices put in place, and how can they sub­se­quent­ly be used to address oth­er major chal­lenges fac­ing communities?

Under­stand­ing the Impact of COVID-19 Com­mu­ni­ty Action Plans Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 Community Action Plans

When faced with the social and eco­nom­ic chal­lenges of a pub­lic health cri­sis like COVID-19, com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions can play a key role in address­ing pop­u­la­tion needs and fos­ter­ing com­mu­ni­ty resilience. But how can these net­works be sup­port­ed so they gen­er­ate the most rel­e­vant impacts and lessons?

Dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies and COVID-19 in Quebec Digital technologies and COVID-19 in Quebec

The COVID-19 pan­dem­ic has high­light­ed the impor­tance of dig­i­tiz­ing gov­ern­ment infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems, as well as the chal­lenges this involves. At the start of the pan­dem­ic, many health author­i­ties still depend­ed on paper-based process­es, man­u­al entry and trans­mis­sion by fax. They were forced to adapt and change their prac­tices very quickly.

Social ties and resilience dur­ing the COVID-19 pandemic Social ties and resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic

The quan­ti­ty and qual­i­ty of social ties are a cru­cial fac­tor in the abil­i­ty of cit­i­zens and com­mu­ni­ties to recov­er from a dis­as­ter. In the con­text of the Covid-19 pan­dem­ic and pub­lic health guide­lines regard­ing phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing, social bonds are now even more like­ly to influ­ence post-cri­sis recov­ery. Changes in social ties due to the pan­dem­ic can also have neg­a­tive con­se­quences on resources nor­mal­ly acces­si­ble to indi­vid­u­als in times of crisis.
