Mitigation is defined as "sustained actions taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects."

There are two main goals regarding mitigation. First, mitigation should minimize the impact on people and damage to property. Second, mitigation should minimize the economic impact of responding to and recovering from disasters. The overall goal of mitigation is to create disaster resistant communities.
