Disasters Are a Development Concern (Module 3)

Frequently disasters are seen as extreme hazard events, which are beyond our control. This film seeks to demonstrate that rather than simply hazard driven, disasters are the result of vulnerabilities and failures in development accumulated over many years, such as unsafe conditions, dynamic pressures and socio-economic and political systems. The film is aimed at development practitioners, politicians and donors and argues that disasters are a development concern and asks for risk reduction to be mainstreamed into development planning.
