3 Disaster Management

Efforts to Mitigate Natural Disaster at National and Global Level What is A ‘Disaster’? It as ‘an event that has occurred unexpectedly with destructive consequences’ - (UNOCHA 2005).  It as ‘a calamitous event resulting in loss of life, great human suffering and distress, and large scale material damage’ - (IFRC2005). None of the international agencies take animals into account in their definitions

4 Animal Behavior

“It  is not uncommon for animals to exhibit behavioral changes before an impending disaster. Wild animals often vacate areas, gather in strange groupings and sometimes will even enter into human habitats they normally avoid,” animal behavior expert Diana L.Guerrero said.Three days before the earthquake, thousands of toads roamed the streets of Mianzhu, a hard-hit city where at least 2,000 people have been reported killed.

5 Livestock Management During Natural Disasters

A  disaster  (from  Latin  meaning,  “bad  star’)  is  the  impact  of  a  natural  or man-made event that negatively affects life, property, livelihood or industry often  resulting  in  permanent  changes  to  human  societies,  ecosystems  and environment.  The  event  itself  is  not  a  disaster;  it  is  the  impact  that  is  a disaster. Their possibility of occurrence, time, place and severity of the strike can  be  reasonably  and  in  some  cases  accurately  predicted  by  technological and scientific advances. Hence, we can to some extent reduce the impact of damage  though  we  cannot  reduce  the  extent  of  damage  itself.  Despite  the severe impacts suffered – including trauma, starvation, dehydration, infection, disease and shock-animals are often the silent victims of disasters, and there is a real need around for the provision of effective training and management programmes to ensure that their survival and welfare are adequately accounted for. This demands the study of disaster management in methodical and orderly approach.The World Health Organization (WHO) defines a ‘disaster’ as any occurrence that  causes  damage,  destruction,  ecological  disruption,  loss  of  human  life, human suffering, deterioration of health and health services on a scale sufficient to  warrant  an  extraordinary  response  from  outside  the  affected  community or area (WHO, 1999). It is an event, concentrated in time and space, which causes social, economic, cultural and political devastation and which affects both individual people and communities (Kumar, 1998).

Conclusion In developing countries, like India, disasters are a common phenomenon every year. The most badly affected are the poor and marginalized communities in India,  who  suffer  most  in  terms of human and property loss when disaster strikes.  Not  only  are  they  the  worst  hit,  but also, their  capacity  to recover from  disaster  is  limited  by  the  social,  economic  and  political  conditions  in which they live. In many developing countries the institutional mechanisms for facing disaster are not sufficient to meet the challenge. This results in the severe  loss  of  human  and  livestock  life  which  could  be  saved,  to  a  greater or lesser extent, if preparedness, response and recovery mechanisms were in order. In terms of disaster preparedness, developing countries are well behind the developed nations. Protecting and saving human life is the first priority in disaster relief and protecting property (which includes animals) is the second. Because of this, emergency management officials in India are not trained to deal  with  animals  or  to  restore  animal  related  business.  This  is  something that requires more attention from the National Crisis Management Committee and  the  state  CMGs,  and  livestock  relief  after  natural  disasters  needs  to  be given greater emphasis.
