    Strengthening community to deal with the impact of natural disasters is a better way to cope and prevent the impact of natural calamities. Natural disasters may cripple the growth of developing countries. So, a better prevention and warning system can protect the livelihood and also is cost effective than the traditional response system. Per dollar humanitarian impact of public money is much more if spent on preparation and risk reduction rather than on relief items. This approach is much more cost effective as we all know prevention is better than cure.

  3. Natural Disaster are unavoidable and inescapable reality to any country. Wiser are those who keep themselves composed to deal with such phenomenon. Occurring of these inevitable disasters such as hurricane, earthquake, flood and volcanic eruption can cause tremendous lifelong damage. enhance the coping capacity to reduce the impact of such hazards is far more batter then to re stable those assets which are lost during disaster.

  4. It is wiser for a community to plan on reinforcing its preparation efficacy in dealing with the coming of expected natural disasters. Through this, it will be avoided to spend more on re-development from a particular catastrophe as well as reducing number of casualties. The government budget should be spent more on preventive measures and awareness campaign instead of allocating more money for food, shelter, clothing, etc. to be distributed to the victims of calamity.
