Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2004
This description of Mihir Bhatt's work was prepared when Mihir Bhatt was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
Mihir Bhatt is redefining disaster mitigation by viewing it as a continuous process of social development and community participation rather than as a short-term rescue and relief effort. His organization, the Disaster Mitigation Institute, is addressing disaster risk management from the victim’s point of view and introducing a long-term social security component in the process.
