The reasons of disasters may be natural, technological or human-made; in any case it breaks down human life to an undesirable state. One of the effective methods for the struggle with disasters is to make appropriate plans to reduce the risks and measures to be taken before the destructive effects of the disasters. The processes that start with the Yokohama strategy framework are indicators of the effectiveness and efficiency of classical disaster management methods. The Hyogo framework action plan indicated that the adverse effects of disasters were reduced in time covering a period of a decade. With the Sendai framework action plan, this period has been increased to fifteen years and future planning is expected to be more effective in the long term. In this study, planning activities aimed at reducing the adverse effects of disaster risks are criticized and their future achievements on Integrated Disaster Management (IDM) techniques are discussed. Moreover, it is also emphasized that the use of information technologies contributed to the Sendai framework action plan and the development of effective relief action plans.
