Disaster preparedness in Zambia aims to reduce, or avoid the potential losses from natural disasters, assure prompt and appropriate assistance to victims of disasters, and achieve rapid and effective recovery. Preparedness is made in anticipation of a disaster event. Developmental considerations play a key role in contributing to the mitigation and preparation of a community to effectively confront a disaster. As a disaster occurs, disaster management actors, in particular, humanitarian organizations become involved in the immediate response and long-term recovery phases. These agencies local and international that work in Zambia are listed here.
