It is well felt that community participation, local planning, development of self reliance and manpower resource within the community itself can strengthen the effort of disaster preparedness and response. The present study was intended to bring out the salient features about perception and opinion of community leaders and community members about existing preparedness programme and appropriateness of mitigatory exercise against flood disaster in four eastern states of India viz. West Bengal, Bihar, Assam and Orissa. Many snags at the implementation level, in terms of co-ordination, directives, logistics and knowledge gap were noted, which should be dealt with due care for successful disaster preparedness programme.
