In: Herath, Srikantha, ed; Katayama, Tsuneo, ed. natural disaster reduction : Proceedings of VII PSA workshop. Okinawa, International Center for Disaster-Mitigation Engineering (INCEDE); Institute of Industrial Science University of Tokyo, jul. 1994. Presentado en: Pacific Science Inter Congress, 7; Okinawa, 27 jun.-3 jul. 1993. The powers, responsibilities and resources of government are limited. The traditional paradigm defining that government should: 1. Through regulation, prevent the individual`s exposure to risk; 2. Through public safety agencies, be responsible for disaster response; 3. Through relief and insurance, indemnify the individual against loss; 4. Through post disaster government loans and grants, make the individual an community whole, is no longer valid. A new paradigm is necessary, one that recognizes the limits of government and the responsibility of the individual and the community to reduce their exposure to hazards. This paper will describe the experience of the State of California in reevaluating where government interventions is most appropriate and where it can be most effective (AU). / CALIFORNIA
