Abstract

Disaster management in developing economies has become a significant issue due to the uncertain situation in the country and has attained the focus of upcoming studies and policymakers. Thus, the present research investigates the impact of coordination, decision making, and special data infrastructure on disaster management in Pakistan. This research also examines the moderating role of information systems among the nexus of coordination, decision making, special data infrastructure, and disaster management in Pakistan. This research has followed the quantitative data collection methods and used questionnaires for this purpose. This study also executed the smart-PLS to investigates the relationships between understudy variables. The results indicated that coordination, decision making, and special data infrastructure have a positive association with disaster management in Pakistan. The findings also indicated that information systems moderates among the links of decision making, special data infrastructure, and disaster management in Pakistan. This study is beneficial for the regulators while formulating the regulations on disaster management in the country.
