Disaster Management

Building capacity of communities to prepare and respond to disasters

CARE India’s Disaster Management initiative works to provide rapid and effective relief measures to the regions impacted by natural calamities. Our strategy encompasses Preparedness, Response, Recovery, and Rehabilitation with an approach of ‘Building Back Safer’. We use post disaster recovery programming to increase the resilience of buildings and communities to future hazards.

CARE India carries out an annual risk profiling and mapping of vulnerable locations in India to enhance its preparedness to respond during emergencies. Long-term engagement with the affected communities and efforts made to provide them immediate relief for recovery are the primary focus of our Disaster Management mandate.
