This publication is an attempt to capture some of the best practices and case studies from disaster management initiatives undertaken by different civil society organizations working in DRR in Odisha. It presents varied innovative strategies and processes adopted by national and international organizations which has led to encouraging results. The best practices have not been graded or assessed by any third party but have been acknowledged so by the implementing organizations themselves.
The definition of disaster is now all encompassing, which includes not only the events emanating from natural and man-made causes, but even those events which are caused by accident or negligence. There was a long felt need to capture information about all such events occurring across the sectors and efforts made to mitigate them in the country and to collate them at one place in a global perspective. This book has been an effort towards realising this thought.
