Abstract

It is quite widely recognized that in many third world countries, disaster mitigation programmes implemented by government agencies suffer from a series of defects and distortions. These include failure to address vulnerability, failure to involve people, and susceptibility to manipulation. The casual attitude towards the natural disasters whether recurrent ones or non-recurrent ones is an intricate manifestation of an internal hope people have about their lives and homes, combined with a lack of understanding of physical relations that control the severity, magnitude and intensity regarding the development of natural disasters. And hence, mitigation of natural disasters should properly be planned and monitored with the main objectives of better preparedness for meeting any situation in terms of relief, rescue and rehabilitation.
