Disaster Mitigation .
Predisaster Mitigation .
Mitigation .
Mitigation: Measures taken in advance of a disaster aimed at decreasing or eliminating its impact on society and environment. Prevention: Activities designed to offer permanent protection against a disaster. They Include engineering and other physical protection measures, as well as legislation to control land use and urban planning. (Material II - IDNDR, 1992) A collective term used to encompass all activities undertaken in anticipation of the occurrence of a potentially disasterous event, including preparedness and long-term risk reduction measures. The process of planning and implementing measures to reduce the risks associated with known natural and man-made hazards and to deal with disasters which do occur. Strategies and specific measures are designed on the basis of risk assessments and political decisions concerning the levels of risk which are considered to be acceptable and the resources to be allocated (by the national and sub-national authorities and external donors). Mitigation has been used by some institutions/authors in a narrower sense, excluding preparedness. It has occasionally been defined to include postdisaster response, then being equivalent to disaster management.

Risk Evaluation and Mitigation .
Elements to Assure Safe Use .
Strategies required by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Amendments Act of 2007 when a question exists as to whether the benefits of a drug outweigh its risks. These constitute a safety plan with several potential components, including a medication guide, a communication plan, elements to ensure safe use and an implementation system to help guide the prescribers, pharmacists and patients. .
