Developing a security architecture that embraces disaster and emergency management policies and practices can be considered complex and highly political. Furthermore, a robust stakeholder security architecture requires that attention is given to intra-government and inter-government working arrangements based on information sharing. It also requires that trust-based relationships between companies that provide disaster relief services and institutions that coordinate disaster relief operations are solidified through time. Hence integrating more fully international disaster relief management operations and holding individual government ministers accountable for their actions, should see a more robust global disaster and emergency management policy and strategy emerge and be implemented. The points put forward in this chapter reinforce the fact that a more pro-active approach is needed with respect to dealing with disaster and emergency situations and that the international community need to view disaster and emergency management from the perspective of stakeholder security.
