I would suggest that Disaster risk reduction is how we stop it happening and disaster management is what we do once it has.

I think we should merge the this with Disaster management since this topic comes under that —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.163.244.30 (talk) 16:47, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't agree since they are very distinct areas and require different activities, interventions and actions. In fact there is a need for more detail of how to prepare for and reduce the impact of different kinds of disaster such as floods, cyclones, earthquakes. Each require a different focus. Water and sanitation preparedness and DRR is also different from health promotion or health system preparedness for example. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ckob2 (talkcontribs) 17:05, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
