Human-induced disasters are catastrophic events resulting from human actions, either intentional or unintentional.
These include industrial accidents, oil spills, nuclear incidents, and deforestation, leading to widespread environmental and health consequences. Unlike natural disasters, these events often stem from negligence, poor planning, or disregard for safety protocols. They can result in significant loss of life, environmental degradation, and economic damage. The impact of such disasters is magnified by their preventability and the long-lasting effects on ecosystems and communities. Addressing human-induced disasters involves stringent regulatory measures, responsible industrial practices, and increased public awareness and education to prevent future occurrences and mitigate their effects.
