Empowering communities to enhance their readiness and response to disasters.

Adarsh Manas Seva Sanstha's Disaster Management initiative is dedicated to swiftly delivering impactful relief efforts to areas affected by natural disasters. Our approach encompasses Preparedness, Response, Recovery, and Rehabilitation, emphasizing 'Building Back Safer'. Through post-disaster recovery programs, we bolster the resilience of both buildings and communities against future hazards while also promoting awareness about disaster management.

As a disaster management NGO, Adarsh Manas Seva Sanastha conducts yearly risk profiling and mapping of vulnerable areas in India to strengthen its readiness for emergency response. Our core focus lies in establishing enduring connections with affected communities and providing swift relief for their recovery. Additionally, we actively promote charitable donations to support the vital work of disaster relief organizations.

Frequently Asked Questions



There are a number of reasons why disaster management is important:

  • Saving lives: During a disaster, the primary goal of disaster management is to save as many lives as possible. Emergency responders can respond to a disaster and evacuate people to safety more quickly and efficiently if proper disaster management plans are in place.
  • Reducing damage: Disaster management can help to mitigate the effects of a disaster. Responders can limit the destruction and loss of property by having plans in place to mitigate the impact of a disaster.
  • Economic stability: Natural disasters can have a significant economic impact. Businesses that have effective disaster management plans in place can resume operations quickly, reducing the economic impact of a disaster.
  • Environmental protection: Disasters can also have a significant environmental impact. Measures to protect the environment and prevent further damage can be included in disaster management plans.
  • Community resilience: Disaster management contributes to community resilience by encouraging preparedness and providing resources and assistance to those impacted by a disaster. Communities can come together and rebuild stronger than before by working together to respond to a disaster.



In disaster management, an NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) is a private organisation that is not affiliated with the government and provides assistance during and after a disaster.
Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) can play an important role in disaster management by providing immediate relief, assisting with long-term recovery, and promoting disaster risk reduction. NGOs can provide a wide range of disaster management services, including:

  • Emergency response: NGOs can provide immediate assistance to those affected by a disaster, such as shelter, food, water, and medical care.
  • Rehabilitation and reconstruction: Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) can assist in the rehabilitation and reconstruction of damaged infrastructure, as well as provide assistance to communities in rebuilding their homes and livelihoods.
  • Disaster risk reduction: Through awareness campaigns, training, and capacity building, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) can work with communities to reduce their vulnerability to disasters.
  • Advocacy and policy influence: Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) can advocate for policies and legislation that promote disaster risk reduction while also addressing the needs of affected communities.

NGOs can provide disaster management services either independently or in collaboration with government agencies and other organisations. Their role in disaster management is critical, particularly when the government lacks the resources or capacity to provide adequate assistance.



India is prone to a wide range of natural disasters due to its diverse geography and climate. Some of the main causes of natural disasters in India include:

  • Cyclones: India’s coasts are vulnerable to cyclones, which are caused by low-pressure systems in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. Floods are primarily caused by heavy monsoon rains, overflowing rivers, and cyclones in India.
  • Earthquakes: India is in a seismically active region, and earthquakes are caused by tectonic plate movement beneath the earth’s surface. Landslides are common in hilly and mountainous areas of India and are typically caused by heavy rainfall and soil erosion.
  • Drought: Droughts in India are caused by monsoon failure, which results in a lack of rainfall and a lack of water supply.
  • Forest fires are frequently caused by natural factors such as lightning strikes or by human activities such as agricultural waste burning.
  • Heat waves: High temperatures, low humidity, and hot winds cause heat waves in India, which can cause dehydration, heatstroke, and other health problems.

It is important to note that human factors such as deforestation, urbanisation, and poor land-use practises exacerbate many natural disasters in India.



There are several organisations that help with natural disasters in India, including the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
