2 CONCEPTS IN DISASTER MANAGEMENT LET US UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPTS BEFORE WE START STUDYING DISASTER MANAGEMENTWE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE NATIONAL VISION AS WELL AS THE PARADIGM SHIFT IN THE FIELDTHE INSTITUTIONAL MECHANISM ALSO NEEDS TO BE UNDERSTOOD
3 TerminologyDISASTER“… A serious disruption of the functioning of a society, causing widespread human, material, or environmental losses which exceed the ability of the affected society to cope using its own resources.”
4 Disaster ManagementA planned approach for the prevention of Disaster, preparedness and response to Disasters, and recovery following Disasters.
5 WHY DISASTER MANAGEMENT ? To minimize deaths and losses.Minimum level of preparedness & planning can do it.Without identification of Risk & vulnerability, only knowledge of hazards is of no useNormal procedures are insufficient to handle grave situations.
6 DefinitionsRisk is defined as the frequency of an event happening and its impactA Hazard is a physical or human-made event that can potentially trigger a disaster.Vulnerability is ‘Susceptibility to harm’ of those at riskCapacities are the qualities & resources of community ( or individual) to … anticipate, cope with, resist & recover from the impact of hazards
7 RiskH x V ÷ C=H = Hazards - Potentiality of a physical event that may cause loss of life or property R = Risks - Probability of harmful consequences or losses V = Vulnerabilities - Factors or processes - physical, social, economic, and environmental - which increase susceptibility of an area or a community to damage and lossC = Capacities - Strengths and resources available within a community, society or organization that can reduce the level of risk, or the effects of a disaster.

20 Lack of knowledge in evacuation, First Aid, Rescue etc. LACK OF INFORMATIONCentralized information is helpful only for a certain range of the population, particularly Government.Lack of knowledge in evacuation, First Aid, Rescue etc.
21 ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION Destruction of mangrove swamps in coastal areas. Construction of huge dams destructing vast area of forest.
22 RAPID URBANISATIONEverybody wants to settle in urban area. High rates can’t accommodate every class of people. It results in growth of slumS, unplanned construction without regulations.
