As it is pointed out in the literature, just focusing on disaster response and recovery phases (namely disaster crisis management) and not paying enough care and attention to mitigation and preparedness phases (namely disaster risk management) has caused different problems in Turkey so far. Turkey's experience with disaster management in the last decade is the prime reason for the need to readdress the disaster mitigation problems in terms of developing a better management mechanism in a manner that would provide highest effectiveness and efficiency.
