The cost of doctors’ fees, a course of drugs and transport to reach a health center can be devastating, both for an individual and their relatives who need to care for them or help them reach and pay for treatment.

Natural Disasters act as a reminder to the humankind of the increasing frequency of natural calamities which can be linked to climate change and unchecked development. India is vulnerable to a wide range of natural hazards, particularly flooding, cyclones, drought, extreme heat waves, landslides, wildfire, and earthquakes. Studies show that, as a result of climate change, the intensity, duration and frequency of weather-related shocks are likely to increase. In India, vulnerability to natural hazards is exacerbated by high population density and growth in urban and coastal areas.
