Fairness refers to ability to make judgements based on the particular situation, interests, and feelings at hand, not just based on general regulations. It is linked to principles of neutrality: disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery should not account for political, racial, religious or ideological intent. Fairness and neutrality are not equal: fairness might mean technological innovation should be arranged so that most benefit goes to the least advantaged.
- Consider how the technologies and practices may affect inequalities.
- Offer opportunities for voice different perspective and hear responses.
