Disaster not only causes loss of life, damages to environment and properties, but has immediate and progressive impact on animals as well, resulting in animal deaths, suffering and economic losses. Hundreds of thousands of animals are affected during disasters such as drought, cyclones, earthquakes, landslides, floods and epidemics. A holistic approach and collective efforts are required to address the issues of animal disaster management more effectively. This may contribute to avoid or minimize the animal suffering, save the animals lives and livelihood of millions of people through protection of animals in disasters.
Preparedness culture is to be inculcated on animal disaster management through awareness, effective information sharing, appropriate education and efficient communication. Join the path of building a safer and disaster resilient India by taking the holistic approach through collective efforts.
The university faculty, students, policy makers, government staff, individuals engaged in the field of disaster management, allied institutions, non government organization staff, volunteers and community are to be sensitized and trained in animal care during response, recovery and rehabilitation in case of disaster.
