Disaster Management can be defined as the organization and management of resources and responsibilities for dealing with all humanitarian aspects of emergencies in order to lessen the impact of disasters.

Disaster Management can be defined as the organization and management of resources and responsibilities for dealing with all humanitarian aspects of emergencies in order to lessen the impact of disasters.

Natural disasters are disasters that are caused because of natural phenomena (meteorological, geological, or even biological origin). Examples of natural disasters are cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions which are exclusive of natural origin. Landslides, floods, drought, and fires are socio-natural disasters since their causes are both natural and manmade. For example, flooding may be caused because of heavy rains, landslides, or the blocking of drains with human waste.

Anthropogenic disasters are disasters that occur due to human intervention or negligence. These are associated with industries or energy generation facilities and include explosions, leakage of toxic waste, pollution, dam failure, wars or civil strife, etc.
