Bihar Hazard Profile

Welcome to Bihar State Disaster Management Authority

The State of Bihar, a multi-disaster prone state, is predominantly rural in character. The geo-climatic conditions of Bihar make it vulnerable to many hazards. The lives and livelihood of millions of the people residing in Bihar gets affected by various disasters from time to time. The State witnesses various types of natural and human induced disasters, like Floods, Drought, Earthquake, Fire, Cyclone (high speed winds), Road accidents, Stampede, Epidemics, Heat Waves, Cold Waves, and Landslides etc. Kosi Flood of 2008 and severe Earthquake of 15 January 1934 have been worst disasters in the history of Bihar and the country. In addition to natural disasters, human induced disasters also pose serious challenge to the people of Bihar. Environment and climate change issues have been at the centre of disasters with increased frequency of extreme weather conditions, thus requiring an eco-sensitive approach to deal with them. With a paradigm-shift from post-disaster efforts to pre-disaster initiatives; better institutional arrangements and increased awareness and preparations, the State is moving towards disaster resilience and emerging as a leader in the field of disaster risk reduction and management and setting examples for other states to follow.
