  • Climate Change as a Policy Development and Public Management Challenge: An
           Introduction to Key Themes
    • Authors: Brian J. Gerber
      Pages: 97 - 108
      Abstract: Climate science has established the underlying pattern of a warming climate on a global scale—along with the implications of such changes. The reality of global warming thus leads inevitably to questions of public policy: how can governments, both across the international system and within individual nation states, regulate activities to help mitigate those factors contributing to global warming? And how can they design systems to become more adaptable to the effects of a changing climate in order to enhance community and national resilience? This symposium issue addresses policy choices and public management efforts by considering the nature of mass and elite opinion on what climate change means and how to address it, how policy innovations are developed, including the utilization of research evidence, and how operational management systems function in practice, particularly at a subnational level.

  • Public Perspectives on Nuclear Security
    • Authors: Kerry G. Herron; Hank C. Jenkins‐Smith
      Pages: 109 - 133
      Abstract: Employing data from two dozen national surveys of the American people conducted between 1993 and 2011, we analyze trends in mass views on key dimensions of nuclear security. We specifically address four questions. (a) How are the risks of nuclear conflict and further nuclear proliferation assessed? (b) How does the public view the relevance and value of US nuclear weapons? (c) What future directions are preferred for the US nuclear weapons stockpile? (d) How are public views about retaining US nuclear weapons structured? Our data show that nuclear conflict with Iran and North Korea and the risks of nuclear weapons or materials being acquired by transnational terrorist groups are seen as the greatest nuclear threats. Most Americans continue to value the efficacy of nuclear deterrence, consider nuclear abolition to be desirable but not yet feasible, and support modest mutual reductions in nuclear weapons. Employing causal modeling, we find that mass beliefs about the importance of retaining US nuclear weapons are hierarchically structured in coherent ways, and therefore are likely to be both resilient and relevant to policy debates on nuclear security.

  • Evolutionary Dynamics of Crisis Preparedness Collaboration: Resources,
           Turbulence and Network Change in Swedish Municipalities
    • Authors: Daniel Nohrstedt; Örjan Bodin
      Pages: 134 - 155
      Abstract: Societal responses to climate change risks and hazards increasingly involve interorganizational collaboration across policy areas, sectors, and levels of government. Different views exist in the literature regarding changes in such collaborative arrangements; whereas some argue that maintaining stability of collaborative networks is a precursor for effective crisis management, others maintain that network adaptation is necessary to cope with complex risks and rude surprises. This controversy turns the spotlight on the more fundamental question of what influences changes in collaborative networks in this area. Using survey data on municipality managers in Sweden, this study presents evidence of a dramatic increase in annual change of interorganizational ties while the total magnitude of ties to different types of actors has essentially remained constant over time. To explain these developments, the study builds from resource dependency theory (RDT) and explores the relationship between resources, environmental turbulence, and network change. The findings suggest that RDT has limited explanatory value in this case; no association was found between resources, turbulence, and network change. An alternative hypothesis is introduced suggesting that changes in networking strategies are a function of outside pressure to collaborate and uncertainty about collaborative practices and the benefits of collaboration, which feed an experimental approach to networking.

  • U.S. Local Governments and Climate Change: Examining the Acquisition and
           Use of Research‐Based Knowledge in Policy Development
    • Authors: Malcolm L. Goggin; Brian J. Gerber, Samantha J. Larson
      Pages: 156 - 177
      Abstract: Cumulative research has demonstrated both the reality and potential impacts of global climate change. In this paper, we focus on the nature of climate‐related policy development at a subnational level by considering actions undertaken by municipal governments in the United States. Specifically, our research objective is to provide an initial descriptive assessment of how local governments utilize what we term research‐based knowledge (RBK) to inform their planning and action strategies around climate change mitigation and adaptation. Doing so is important because local governments in the United States represent a key source of policy innovation on climate change issues and because there is relatively little existing research on exactly how RBK might be utilized in this domain. Our comparative case descriptions from four locations suggest that city officials use RBK in both strategic and political manners. That is, while using existing information and policy networks and generally relying on outside experts for rational comprehensive evaluation, climate‐related RBK often both justifies the existing position of local officials (strategic use) and legitimizes previous policy choices (political use). The implications of this initial assessment can assist in testing future theoretic arguments on the exact nature of RBK acquisition and use surrounding climate change policymaking.

  • Social Capital, Community Resilience, and Faith‐Based Organizations
           in Disaster Recovery: A Case Study of Mary Queen of Vietnam Catholic
    • Authors: Jason David Rivera; Ashley E. Nickels
      Pages: 178 - 211
      Abstract: Because governmental structures put in place to mitigate disaster risks and aid communities in the disaster recovery process have, at times, proven to be inadequate, reliance on other types of organizations is necessary for some communities to survive. Although there are a number of different actors that played a role in the reestablishment of communities within New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina took place, the Mary Queen of Vietnam (MQVN) Catholic Church is a prime example of how a community‐based organization stepped in to address the needs of its community. This article examines how MQVN garnered social capital within its surrounding community to pursue successful community development in the absence of and opposition to governmental support and political resistance. This article will first review the government failure and decrease in civic trust that fostered a robust third‐sector response in disaster recovery and redevelopment. Then, using social capital theory, the article supports the notion that civic distrust and confidence is derived from government and institutional performance, rather than increasing individualism or declining social trust. Finally, implications for federal disaster policy and third‐sector disaster interventions are proposed.

  • Establishing Parameters for Identification of Vulnerable Occupations in a
           Disaster Scenario in Gujarat, India
    • Authors: Nitin Srivastava; Rajib Shaw
      Pages: 212 - 238
      Abstract: Natural disasters in developing countries have direct and indirect economic effects, which impact the persons from all economic strata. While some can recover, many are left stranded in the aftermath of the disaster, deprived of earning opportunities. An effectual policy targeting this population, mostly engaged in low‐income jobs or the informal sector of the economy, can be formulated only if the impact on these occupations can be competently computed. This paper establishes parameters to identify vulnerable occupations and gives direction to devise the strategy for “occupational resilience.” The paper also shares the results of a preliminary study conducted in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, involving 40 disaster hit communities; victims of urban floods in the last decade, spatially distributed over urban, peri‐urban and rural areas and validates the previously laid parameters at the field level. It also gives an insight into the communities' survival strategies and the issues that link the employment and urban‐rural linkage elements to the disaster.
