ABSTRACT

It is very important to suggest improvement measures through periodic evaluation of local governance for disaster safety in order to ensure effective disaster prevention and response. This study analyzed the level of cooperation with the related organizations as well as internal and external organizations participating in local governance through a local governance network analysis for disaster safety in Gyeonggi-do, Korea. The improvement measures based on the results are as follows. First, it is necessary to strengthen the connection with external organizations by expanding personnel exchanges with them and conducting relevant training in a regular basis. Second, it is crucial to avoid inter-departmental conflict and indifference and strengthen the level of business cooperation between internal departments in Gyeonggi-do. Third, establishing local governance for disaster safety would be important in connection with civil society organizations, particularly national movement groups operating in local governments (e.g. righteous movement councils, Saemaul Undong councils, etc.). Fourth, it is necessary to revitalize the operation and activities of voluntary disaster prevention teams responding to disasters in the region.
