Mitigation is defined as taking an action now to reduce future risk.
For example, a mitigation action is tying your shoe to prevent you from tripping and hurting yourself; purchasing a flood insurance policy to help you recover faster from a flood event.
Why is Mitigation Important?
Mitigation breaks the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction and repeated damage. Hazard mitigation includes long-term, permanent solutions that reduce the impact of disaster in the future.
