Why Disaster Mitigation


The count of disasters and the damage that they have caused has been increasing at an alarming rate.

Recent times have witnessed alternating droughts and floods in the same area. Its snowing in deserts and the temperature in warm areas goes sub-zero.

Gods seem to be unhappy with us.

And then, the man made disasters are competing for supremacy over their natural counterparts too. Terrorist attacks, fires and biological/chemical contamination have made history in recent times. We are sitting on time bombs ready to explode. The technological advancements in bio/chemical/nuclear warfare are making us vulnerable like never before.

So, its high time that we pull up our socks and start thinking seriously about methods of controlling or at least minimizing the damage in any future disasters.

For a safe and secure future for ourselves and our society we need to immediately group up and start making ourselves less vulnerable.

Survival of the Fittest is the only rule nature follows.
