This document offers a general overview of the 'natural' sudden climate disasters status in the Arab region (with case studies from several countries under consideration), and provides linkage between disaster reduction and natural resources management, land-use planning, climate change adaptation and environmental protection.
It is intended to be used as part of mass media campaigns to achieve a better understanding how to face 'natural' disasters in the Arab region, in synergy among efforts to combat the negative effects of 'natural' disasters, and supports exchange of expertise and information pertinent to 'natural' disasters among Arab countries.
Presenting the appropriate measures to react swiftly in the event of 'natural' disaster, and tackling the formulation of appropriate behaviour strategies and development policies for informing the population to apply before, during and after 'natural' disasters, it also exposes the role of stakeholders (government ministries, department and agencies, disaster prone communities, scientific institutions, registered NGOs, voluntary organizations, and the private sector) for an effective disaster management. Finally, it presents an open platform for professionals, researchers, experts, agricultural and rural management authorities, decision-makers (including politicians as well), and the public at large to benefit from.
