Disaster is a severe disruption
of the functioning of society which poses momentous, extensive threat to human
life, health, property, or the milieu, whether developing suddenly or as the
result of long term process. The increasing regularity
and severity of contemporary disasters has
highlighted the need for effective emergency management
regimes .Over the past four years, countless volunteers and nongovernmental
organizations (NGOs) have provided manpower and resources to help communities
respond to and recover from the impact of disasters. NGOs can play a crucial
role in supporting the government’s memo of disaster mitigation and thereby
ensuring long term resilience. A non-governmental organization (NGO) is any
non-profit, voluntary citizens' group which is organized on a local, national
or international level. Task-oriented and driven by people with a common
interest, NGOs perform a variety of services and humanitarian functions. There
are national level NGOs acting as donor and advocacy organizations, state level
NGOs involved in mobilizing communities through various campaigns as well as
action research and local NGOs working directly with communities. There are
many Community Based Organizations (CBOs), which also play a momentous role for
the short, medium and long term human recovery in pre, during and post
disaster. The National Policy on Disaster management 2009 reflects the role of
NGOs, CBOs and other stakeholders as potential partners for disaster
management. This replicates the importance of contributions made by the NGOs in
all phases of disaster management for long term humanitarian assistance over
the years in worldwide.
