 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Disaster Management is the continuous process by which all individuals, groups and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid or ameliorate the impact of disasters resulting from the hazards. Actions taken depend in part on perceptions of risk of those exposed. Effective disaster management relies on thorough integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government involvement. Activities at each level affect the other levels. It is common to place the responsibility for governmental disaster management with the institutions for civil defence or within the conventional structure of the emergency services. In the private sector, disaster management is sometimes referred to as business continuity management.

The present encyclopaedic work on disaster management deals with disasters like earthquake, cyclone, drought, flood, volcanoes, tsunami, global climate change, hazardous material disasters, man-made disasters etc. It covers all aspects from assessing the risk prior to a disaster to the legal ramifications following a disaster. It encompasses not only the tried and true tactics used for decades but also focuses on areas often overlooked during the reactive and post disaster phases. This work will help readers to understand and practice the techniques which can help in prevention, mitigation and rehabilitation.
