To participate in the Discussion Board:  

Each student must write a response to the prompt  (minimum 250 words not counting reference list)

Select ONE of the following:

1) Analyze the vulnerability situation in Haiti before the earthquake using Week 2 Coppola’s vulnerability types: physical, environmental, social and economic vulnerabilities. Link these pre existing vulnerabilities with the consequences of the earthquake. Note: Review Coppola reading on vulnerability (week 2): no need to define each type of vulnerability, it is common knowledge now so focus on this weeks case, Coppola does not count for the 2 minimum sources.

2) Discuss the cholera outbreak after the earthquake. What was the UN’s role in the cholera outbreak and what are the lasting effects of this outbreak to this day. 

Requirements: Prompt responses should answer the question and elaborate in a meaningful way using 2 of the weekly class readings (250 words of original content). Do not quote the readings, paraphrase and cite them using APA style in text citations. You can only use ONE multimedia source for your minimum 2 sources each week. The readings must be from the current week. The more sources you use, the more convincing your argument. Include a reference list in APA style at the end of your post, does not count towards minimum word content.
