Description :
Two major concepts, namely, reducing risks and vulnerability to hazards, have dominated the study of natural hazards and disasters over the past decade. A shift from emergency, reactive responses to disasters has occurred with calls for a focus on risk reduction and disaster mitigation. The flood event of 2000 in Alexandra is taken as a case study. - (AJC)
