The face of disasters 2019: beyond response to build a sustainable future

Source(s):  Sustainable Environmental and Ecological Development Society (SEEDS)

This report provides an overview of natural hazards in India and delves into the changing face of disaster risks, as climate change, rainfall variability, increased water use, population growth, the built environment and urbanization drive higher levels of risk. It emphasizes the need to look at ‘disasters’ from a broader perspective, with roots in resource management practices, to include considerations of socioeconomic vulnerability and the impact of disasters beyond direct economic losses. It aims to bring about a conversation on building a sustainable future, which is beyond disaster response and includes resilience and sustainability.
