Natural disasters are inevitable and can not be prevented from occurring, but in return, attempts can be made to control them, and to minimize as far as possible their negative effects on society through the following: Promote human responsibility by desist from harmful practices of the environment that lead to degradation The global environmental system, and taking into account all the disasters that can occur by setting up contingency plans to act in the event of any possible natural disaster to get out of them with the least possible losses, regardless of the devastating consequences of the infrastructure and structural of the natural disaster, there are losses Great for human lives as well, so here comes the most important role of the backup plans in place to deal with these losses effectively and quickly to reduce them and avoid the worst.the worst. Paying attention directly to the aftermath of the disaster; those affected physically and wounded must be controlled to prevent the spread of infection. Developing scientific research related to weather forecasting techniques, enhancing observation related to volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. to know their impact on available natural resources and how to avoid them. Applying advanced technology, such as improving communications, to ensure that warnings are spread as widely as can be reached

    Hi intellectual_vegetable,

    Thanks for your post. Out of the things you have listed, which do you think are most realistic or feasible and which are the most unlikely or difficult to enforce? Try to give reasons for your answers.

    As this is a global conversation, what role does internationalism have to play?

      The application of advanced technology (improving communications) is one of the most realistic and achievable things and one of the most difficult to implement is accurate weather forecasting.
      The role that the International must play is to accelerate the strengthening of international cooperation to find appropriate alternatives and work on its experience and application to reduce this phenomenon.
      Thank you for this great post

    Thank you Intellectual_Vegetable, you have made some interesting suggestions! You mentioned the importance of having contingency plans to minimize the negative effects on society, can you think of any actions that could be included in these plans?
    I am also interested that you have said "natural disasters are inevitable and can not be prevented from occurring". Do you think that the spread of infection can be included in the category of natural disaster?

    We can deal with natural disaster by first evacuating the area, second , try to stop the disaster from spreading, thirdly find a way to stop it

    I think that when extreme weather hits you need to react quickly before things go out of hand. An example of this would be when the Monsoon season in India had a lot more rain than usual thanks to climate change. All the Dams filled up and despite so many warnings the government opened the dams when they were completely full, this resulted in tsunami like body of water to come crashing out of the dams. I was there at the time many houses were damaged including my Aunties and many more, many lives were lost as well The government should have opened the dams before they reached full capacity so that less water would come out. Also in areas that are effected by you need to plan ahead. Kochi Airport in India was submerged with the water from the dams because it was built on a flood plain, a very low lying section of land that has bodies of water near it according to google. This disrupted travel, I could not see my mum for a month. She works in the NHS so she has to spread her leave time over the year more that our dad so she leaves for India 3 weeks after us. She could not reach where we were staying because the airport was submerged. They should not have built Kochi on a flood plain. They should have planned ahead and realized that the airport could get flooded in the future.

    Thank you for reading.

    In my estimation, it is almost impossible to prevent the occurrence of disasters, but it is possible to reduce their effects and the damage caused by adopting an appropriate plan for managing and mitigating their risk. Therefore, a systematic and comprehensive structure must be established to increase awareness of the importance of disaster risk management, which is an important part of (sustainable development, SD ) Which aims to build societies and countries that are strong in resisting and mitigating disasters.
    This can be done through three steps or goals
    1. Integration of disaster risk reduction into sustainable development policies.
    2. Developing and strengthening institutions, mechanisms, and capabilities to build the community’s ability to face strong risks.
    3. Inclusion to reduce disaster risk in implementing emergency preparedness, response and recovery programs

    3.Identify local support groups
    4.Talk about the effects of the natural disaster
    5.Focus on self care

    Though the effect of natural disaster can be severe and far- reaching,there are steps you can take to cope.
    1: seek out and connect with social support
    2: identify local support groups or available crisis counselors to talk to
    3: try to establish a schedule
    4: talk about the effect of the natural disaster

    We can stop natural disasters by studying them and knowing how they affect so as we can control or overcome them.

    How we can reduce natural disasters are
    Awareness, education, preparedness, and prediction and warning systems can reduce the disruptive impacts of a natural disaster on communities. Mitigation measures such as adoption of zoning, land-use practices, and building codes are needed, however, to prevent or reduce actual damage from hazards.
