Disaster Mitigation Mitigation measures taken to prevent or reduce the risk to life, property, economic and social activities, and natural resources from natural disasters is essential to the initiative of the Decade. Awareness, education, supplies, and forecasting and warning systems can reduce the impact of natural disasters on public nuisance. Control measures such as the use of zoning, land-use practices, and building codes are needed, however, to prevent or reduce damage to real hazard. Avoiding development on flood-prone landslide- and through planning and zoning ordinances, for example, can save money in the construction and reduce the loss of life and damage to property and natural resources. Post disaster study further validate the
EUROPEAN UNION SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY – EU SDS Given the problems faced by the world as a consequence of climate change the world needs to deal with this issue and deal with it to avoid more damage, and the only way to do that is to face the problem and change the way the world act. That change can’t be just in an area, it has to be made in all the tree areas of development (society, economy and environment). In order to achieve that change, the United Nations has created a commission named Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD).

Definition Sustainable development has been defined in many ways, but the most frequently quoted definition is from “our common future”, also known as the Brundtland report. “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” It contains within it two key concepts: 1. The concepts of needs, in particular the essential needs of the world’s poor, to which overriding priority should be given. 2. The idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organisation on the environments ability to meet present and future needs.
Qatar has initiated several steps to protect its natural environment including projects to monitor water and air quality, reduce emissions of carbon and maintain biological diversity. Qatar is facing major environmental issues that need to be resolved as soon as possible. Most important are to achieve water security, reduce the emissions of carbon and increasing energy efficiency and removing risks that are threatening the safety of the marine environment. To assess the severity of risks and dealing with the changes, it will require mobilizing resources, coordinating efforts and devising and appropriate policy and regulatory frameworks in place.
The use of renewable energy is important as it reduces environmental degradations which contribute tremendously to climate change. The reduction of greenhouse gases needs to be reduced in order to reduce its negative impacts. Raising awareness on environmental issues and the importance of sustainable use and conservation is vital and the public needs to be informed about it. Developing and adopting innovative skills to reduce degradation and conserve resources ensuring the environment is
