Abstract

The World Conference on Disaster Reduction convened by United Nationals General Assembly, from January 18-22, 2005 and the resulting Hyogo Framework for Action underscored the need for, and identified ways of, building the resilience of nations and communities to disasters. Despite increasing concern about natural disasters among the international community and a somewhat decreasing trend in the number of victims, extreme events continue to kill thousands of people and have caused severe economic disruption, notably in the developing world.
