Increasing frequency and severity of natural disasters during the last fifteen years in the Republic of Moldova, limited resources for prevention and mitigation of their impact, has increased the level of vulnerability of the population. Considered efforts are to be made to decrease vulnerability of population through a dipper study of human and societal dynamics, different methodologies of disaster forecast and prevention, transfer of technology and knowledge. In this publication theoretical knowledge and practical experiences in the area of natural and anthropogenic disasters are discussed. Practical recommendations are developed for the prevention of negative effects on the environment and society.
