DISASTER RELIEF

Why Disaster Response

Due to its geographical location, India faces a high susceptibility to a range of natural disasters, making it a disaster-prone nation. The National Disaster Management Authority, under the Government of India, reports that more than 58.6% of the country’s land area is at risk of earthquakes, over 12% is prone to flooding, about 5,700 kilometers of the 7,516-kilometer coastline is susceptible to cyclones and tsunamis, and approximately 68% of cultivable land is vulnerable to droughts. This highlights the critical importance of disaster preparedness.

The complexity of disaster risks in India is heightened by various factors such as evolving demographics, socio-economic conditions, unregulated urban growth, development in high-risk regions, environmental degradation, shifts in climate patterns, as well as the emergence of epidemics and pandemics. This combination of factors has created a precarious situation where natural disasters pose significant threats not only to the country’s sustainable development but also to countless lives and livelihoods.
