Activity on how to make people aware about disaster mitigation?
In order to create awareness on disaster mitigation among the general public, education would be the most important and effective method. Education can come in many ways. We can educate children on disaster mitigation at school, educate adults and the elderly through talks, leaflets and mock disaster activities.

What are mitigation strategies for cyclones?
The National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Process was launched in India. The main objectives of the project are to minimize risk and vulnerabilities to cyclones, to strengthen the structural and non-structural cyclone mitigation efforts and to build capabilities and capacities of people for cyclone risk mitigation in harmony with the conservation of coastal ecosystems in coastal cyclone hazard prone States and Union Territories. Mitigation means "measures taken in advance that are aimed to decrease or eliminate the impact of disasters on the community and environment". Today, the Policy makers and Disaster Management specialists are rethinking their approach to disaster management by increasing investment in risk reduction & mitigation measures rather than concentrating on post disaster response (relief & reconstruction). The Mitigation Strategies could be ✓ Proper infrastructure development for providing accurate and prompt cyclone warning. ✓ Design and construction of robust buildings, roads, bridges and other infrastructure besides "Cyclone proof" buildings, which have storage and sleeping areas high off the ground and use water-resistant materials. ✓ Hazard reduction by trying to control the hazard in advance, such as, seawalls, diversion drains, coastal shelterbelts, protection and promotion of natural sea side vegetation (mangrove) etc. ✓ Land use planning, which "builds in" a distance between the hazard and the community. ✓ Management of Delta Zones. ✓ Contingency Plans at all levels (community, government and civil society), which include disaster mitigation strategies. ✓ Awareness and Educational campaigns that provide advice to the community on cyclone preparedness as well as mitigations measures ✓ Develop healthy partnerships between stakeholders at all levels -especially government, private sector and the community to achieve sustainable mitigation strategies.

How do you mitigate and prevent emergency situations?
Mitigation in emergency management means the steps taken to prevent all possible hazards that may lead towards a disaster. The mitigation phase of emergency management is unique because it focuses on long-term tasks that are effective at reducing or eliminating any risk of a disaster from occurring. Mitigation is part of four phases of emergency management: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery. After the recovery phase, mitigation may begin again as a part of the recovery process. The first step in mitigation is to identify risks. This is usually done by finding a potential hazard and then examining it to determine the chances of it causing a disaster and who is vulnerable to the disaster. For example, if there is a catastrophic earthquake, but it occurs in the middle of the desert where nobody lives, then there is no risk involved.
