Natural disasters are a common phenomenon faced by developed as well as developing nations all over the world. A World Bank (WB) report asserts that twenty-four out of forty-nine Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are under extreme threat of disasters. Among them Pakistan is situated in the hub of climatic changes and has also faced many disasters, naturally caused due to geographical location, geophysical position and resources endowments. This phenomenon has been addressed by this book introduced by Neelofur Jamil.It aims to investigate the relation between the disastrous situation and the need for capacity building to prevent and deter these situations by utilizing qualitative approach. In the aftermath of flood in 2010, most of the government institutions established for disaster management were paralysed and not in the position to deliver the required functions conferred upon them by the constitution of Pakistan. This situation increased the vulnerabilities of the affected people. Hence this book tries to examine the need for capacity building to cope with the disastrous floods in future and also to give trainings to the people at gross root level and strengthen the preparedness
