Disaster Management: The Rationale Disasters, natural or man-made result in untold misery on the human beings and adverse effects on the ecology. Thus our ability to manage and mitigate disaster assumes paramount importance. Disaster management is understood as the managerial function charged with creating the framework, within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters. The function of disaster managers is to evaluate risk and exposure, create response plans and ensure response capacity after an event. The response capacity to disaster becomes complete when the community, with specific reference to youth is involved in the entire disaster management cycle. Youth constitute a vibrant, constructive force of a nation and more so in India, where it is emerging as a leading nation in the percentage of population in the age group of 13-35.

And this is not limited to India alone, nuclear disaster in Japan, flood in China and tsunami in the pacific - worldwide disaster management is gaining utmost importance as the frequency of disasters natural or man-made is on the rise.
