Disaster management aims to reduce or avoid the losses from hazards. It also ensures that prompt and appropriate assistance to victims of disaster is provided to enable rapid and effective recovery. The disaster management is an ongoing process which enables the governments, businesses, and civil society to plan for the reduction of the impact of disasters by quickly responding to a disaster and taking steps to recover from it. The essential components of a disaster management programme include shaping of public policies and plans so that they either modify the causes of disasters or mitigate their effects on people, property, and infrastructure. This leads to greater preparedness, better warnings, reduced vulnerability or the prevention of disasters. The Programme of Master of Science in Disaster Management and Sciences aims at creating human resource with a solid and holistic knowledge base so that they are able to understand the complex context of activities required before, during and after a disaster and are able to take up the challenge of minimising the losses.
