    • Intensity of Hazard.
    • Duration.
    • Spatial Extent.
    • Density of Population & Assets.
    • Time of Occurrence.
    • Vulnerabilities existing in the Elements at Risk.

    • Irrigation) Revenue Department, Public
    • Health, Police etc. NGOs
  • 11. DEFINITIONS OF “VULNERABILITY”
    • “ The extent to which a community, structure, service or geographic area is likely to be damaged or disrupted by the impact of particular disaster hazard…”
    • “ Vulnerability is the propensity of things to be damaged by a hazard”.
  • 12. DISASTER PREPAREDNESS
    • Disaster preparedness aims at minimizing the adverse effects of a hazard -
    • Through effective precautionary actions
    • Ensure timely, appropriate and efficient organisation and delivery of emergency response following the impact of a disaster .
  • 13. PREPAREDNESS
    • Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping to include Resources.
    • Assess strengthening requirements and execute .
    • Funding for preparedness must be arranged.
    • Peoples’ cooperation through Political leaders, elders, Volunteers and NGOs
    • Create lead time by interpreting Warnings
    • Plan to include movement of resources with time frame.
    • Aim to reduce the destructive potential of cyclones, timely & appropriate relief to victims and quick & durable recovery
