This month's highlight
Highlightihg a theme that GDRC is currently working on
Environment and Disasters:
The impacts of disasters, whether natural or man-made, not only have human dimensions, but environmental ones as well. Environmental conditions may exacerbate the impact of a disaster, and vice versa, disasters have an impact on the environment. Deforestation, forest management practices, agriculture systems etc. can exacerbate the negative environmental impacts of a storm or typhoon, leading to landslides, flooding, forest fires, silting or ground/surface water contamination.

This theme explores the cyclical and intrinsic linkages between good (or bad) environmental management on one hand, and disaster prevention and mitigation on the other.
