Learning from Deaths in Disasters: The Case of Odisha, India

journal contribution
posted on 15.07.2016, 10:36 by Nibedita Shankar Ray-Bennett
In 1999, Odisha, India was struck by a super cyclone featuring an unprecedented storm surge and torrential rainfall that resulted in widespread devastation and a substantial loss of life. Fourteen years later, the same area was hit by Cyclone Phailin, which despite its severity, claimed relatively few lives. This essay examines the reasons for the starkly different death tolls and considers what lessons could be drawn from the responses to these two disasters.
