V. Rathore


India has been traditionally vulnerable to natural disasters on account of its unique geo-climatic conditions. Floods, droughts, cyclones, earthquakes and landslides have been a recurrent phenomena. Despite the fact that we cannot prevent an earthquake or a typhoon from occurring, or a volcano from erupting, we can apply the scientific knowledge and technical knowledge to Disaster risk reduction. Supervision of disaster risks and disaster events is heavily dependent on scientific knowledge and evidence - based technique. Coping with hazards whether natural or attributable to human activity is one of the greatest challenges of the applications of science and technology. In the present paper review on various technologies helps in disaster risk reduction is presented. A detailed information including functionality, working and applications of DBMS, RDBMS, MIS, DSS, Geographic information systems and remote sensing have been presented in the paper.
