Isn't this again a question of inadequate awareness creation/animation? Shouldn't people investigate their own reality? Shouldn't external interventions be designed in such a way that people, especially the poor, initiate process which tends them to make a social inquiry of their own reality and identify that disasters are a part of that reality? Such a process would, in my view, help them to tap their own wisdom as well as the traditional knowledge they possess to initiate a process which would manage disaster risks.
