BEFORE CRITICAL DISASTER STRIKES: HYPER TRANSFORMATIVE NEGOTIATION IN VIEW OF SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION

T.Y. Okosun

Abstract


Critical natural or human-made disasters have increased over the years, but their impact is most felt in poorer regions of the world. In the beginning of the 21st Century, there is increased urgency to find efficient and sustainable solutions to these disasters. However, the customary response to critical crises continues to be unidirectional. When critical disasters strike, poor nations rely on advanced nations for solutions. This formula though useful in the short term has had devastating consequences. This article focuses on why this approach must change in order for poor nations to become self-sustaining and self-supporting  before, during, and after a critical disaster occurs. The attempt here is to  develop  a strategy whereby poor and advanced nations enter into hyper  transformative negotiations focused on holistic considerations. These  considerations include economic, social, political, and other crucial elements which are the foundations for securing well being and selfsufficiency,  the indispensable prerequisite for critical crises preparation.
