Despite international efforts, the increase in natural disaster damage and casualties is growing. Climate change and adaptation, as well as poverty reduction, inclusivity (of women, children, and other vulnerable groups), and sustainable development have all been described as critical factors for such a new disaster risk reduction system, as these are inextricably linked elements of disaster risk reduction. Since the community is the front line of disaster risk management, bottom-up disaster preparedness with an emphasis on enhanced resilience at the community level is critical. While the social and economic aspects [...]
