Avoidable deaths: a way ahead

Source(s):  All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI)

This publication tries to highlight the importance of reducing disaster mortality. Even the global level policy instrument Sendai Framework that guides the actions of nations in disaster management has enshrined "substantial reduction disaster mortality" as a veritable target to be pursued by its 185 signatory countries.

This issue explores the theme of avoidable deaths in disaster situations in an inter-disciplinary and systemic way. Disasters are often complex phenomena that impact the world in a variety of adverse ways. The possible triggers that can lead to large-scale death and destruction have been explored in this issue. This issue is also a valuable resource to researchers, practitioners and students interested in expanding their understanding on this particular theme.

This issue's contents includes: (i) Moving towards avoidable deaths; (ii) Incentivizing transparency, expediting humanitarian assistance, and strengthening civil society; (iii) Women take the Lead: turning crises into an opportunity for development; (iv) Disaster risk reduction – save the nature and nature will nurture you; (v) How can Asia address avoidable deaths?; (vi) Why zero mortality in schools is a myth; (vii) Non–traditional approaches to finance for disaster recovery: a few examples for consideration; and (viii) Impacting lives through skilling.
