Tracing the missing links, the book further addresses the key issues for action and presents operational guidelines. Also, it explores the role of community based organisations, NGOs, World Association of Small and Medium Enterprises, Information Technology, the convergence of delivery system and the Inter-State Council Secretariat in the mitigation of disasters.
