2 1 0 3 Objectives The main aim of offering this subject is to provide an accurate understanding of the basic concepts of Natural Disasters and understanding the process of evolution and its impact on the human environment. Disaster mitigation and preparedness needs to be adopted in case of emergencies during the disasters like earthquake, floods, landslides etc., along with active participation of Government / Administrative personnel, Voluntary organizations, citizens groups and SHGs. Outcome Student will be able to 1. Understand the basic concepts of natural disasters 2. Define the role of individual; stakeholders in emergency management 3. Differentiate the process of earthquake preparedness and rehabilitation measures 4. Know the various stages of disaster preparedness, mitigation and management. 5. Apply the different mechanisms/techniques of mitigation and management. Contents
