 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Disasters are as old as human history but the dramatic increase and the damage caused by them in the recent past have become a cause of national and international concern. Over the past decade, the number of natural and manmade disasters has climbed inexorably. From 1994 to 1998, reported disasters average was 428 per year but from 1999 to 2003, this figure went up to an average of 707 disaster events per year showing an increase of about 60 per cent over the previous years. The biggest rise was in countries of low human development, which suffered an increase of 142 per cent.

Some of you must have encountered one or the other natural or manmade hazard which has caused a huge loss to life and property and have disrupted the normal life of the people. Those who have had the opportunity to undergo certain training on safety like first aid or search and rescue would have helped those in misery but then all of you are not well equipped with both theoretical and practical knowledge. As a young responsible citizen you can take up initiatives to prepare the community and make the community a safer place to live. The main objective of this volume is to have a basic understanding of various concepts used in Disaster Management. The concepts explained here are: Disaster, Hazard, Vulnerability, Capacity, Risk and Disaster Management Cycle. Apart from the terminologies, the chapters also try to explain various types of disasters. This book will help all students of Geography, who are the future citizens, to have a better understanding of the subject so that they are well prepared to combat it.
