This publication analyzes the 'natural' disaster trends in the year 2005 for the purpose of accelerating and strengthening global and regional socio-economic frameworks for addressing the consequences of natural disasters and designing effective disaster reduction mechanisms. It is aimed to transform the total disaster risk management approach into an instrument for global sustainable development.
It is of use not only to policy planners, researchers, and scholars, but also to grass-roots promoters of development initiatives.
