Rev Dr. M J Joseph delivered the Seminar on Disaster Preparedness & Mitigation.

Disaster is a sudden accident (natural or man-made ) or natural event that causes great  damage and loss of life.  Riots, Wild Fire, Global Warming, Pollution etc. are disasters. Even Population Explosion is a disaster.

Disaster Management is one of the important ingredients for a Sustainable Future. Disaster Management is about coping up with disaster in spite of difficulties while Mitigation is about lessening the severity of disaster and easing out the impacts.

Rev Dr. M J Joseph discussed various steps to be taken to mitigate the risks. Achen’s paper on this topic can be accessed from here.
