Disaster Psychosocial Response Handbook for Community Counsellor Trainers

Published by woodstockwoody
Most Indian communities have little pre-disaster training and preparation
in what to do, if a disaster occurs. Cyclone affected communities, or
those that regularly experience floods may be better prepared for impact
than others. As training and preparation can mitigate both impact and
after-effects, it is increasingly important that vulnerability to disaster is
addressed and people and communities become involved in relevant
planning and training.
