From Risk to Resilience

Disasters are tragic interruptions to the development process, consuming millions of unlived lives and precious infrastructure. Development infrastructure created over the years in different sectors die premature deaths, and affected countries are forced back several steps in their development journey. Precious time, effort and money otherwise allocated for development work, has to be pumped into relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction work for putting the country ‘back on track’ of economic and social development. Natural disasters therefore, impede social and economic growth, as they wipe out investments and divert resources from federal, state and municipal budgets and aid agencies to recovery activities. Global, national and local attempts are being made to reduce the impact of disasters. Nearly, one hundred and sixty nine countries, have signed a global agreement called Hygo Framework of Action, in 2005 for disaster risk reduction. All the signatories to the framework are committed to make development risk resilient by attaining five goals- that include ensuring disaster risk reduction as a national and local priorities , identify ,assess and monitor disaster risks and enhance early warning, use knowledge ,innovation and education to build a culture of safety and resilience at all levels, reduce the underlying the risk factors and strengthen disaster preparedness for effective response at all levels.
