ABSTRACT

How to forecast and properly prepare for large-scale disasters has become one of the top priorities not only in those countries where such catastrophes used to occur, but also in developed countries in general. To find the answers to these questions, this study adopts the methods of future research such as the environmental scanning method, delphi survey, and scenario method. On the basis of them, it is examined whether the current Korean system of catastrophic disaster response can be improved with respect to disaster laws and institutions, governance structure, practical manuals and disaster education. The conclusion drawn from the analyses can be summarized as follows: Catastrophic disasters include not only traditional disasters(out of natural, man-made and social causes). But they should also include new types of disasters(hybrid disasters), which with the scope of its socio-psychological impact go often far beyond the capacity of an average national disaster management system and thus seriously affect the economy, politics, culture and society. To cope with such disasters the understanding of a catastrophic disaster should be enhance, the focus of response should be shifted from the treatment on the spot to continuous measures based on the basic national function, an integrated national disaster management system mobilizing all national capacities should be prepared.
