New Delhi: Santosh Gangwar says, " Organisations and civil society organisations works in different ways but when they work together they can do wonders in the prevention of disaster management”.

Today, we all require awareness to combat disasters. Institutions and social organizations plays a significant role in this regard. The whole globe is preparing for future disasters by putting in place the necessary infrastructure. India has also been a diligent observer of disasters. Since the world is currently evolving. The country is preparing itself to face any issue as a whole. The sole stipulation is that people must be made aware of any calamity or tragedy before it occurs. In this area, the government and social organizations are constantly working. People have discovered "opportunity even amid disaster," as the country has witnessed.
