ABSTRACT

This article discusses how to improve the disaster relier system of Korea by coordinating and net- working the resources of both in public and private sector. In order to address the tasks, the current situations and problems of Korean disas- ter relief systems were identified. The problems were; the low national responsibility, the frag- mentation of private efforts, and the lack of coor- dination and linkage between public and private organizations active in disaster. The lowness of effectiveness of the disaster relief activities is due to the lack of networking and coordinating of the responsibilities, roles, and activities between the organizations. In order to overcome these problems, several tasks were addressed. First, the problems and needs of the victims are to be assessed, identified, and shown by the objective and scientific methods. Second, the disaster relief service administration system is to be restructured based on these needs and pro- blems of the victims. Finally, the organizational function should be obtained for the coordination and linkage of the disaster relief efforts. The au- thor suggested the example of the network of the organizations active in disaster of public and pri- vate sector.
