A search into the literature showed that there is still a dearth of studies on the categorisation and roles of stakeholders involved in disaster management. This might not be unconnected with the soaring trend of both natural and man-made disaster globally. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine the role of stakeholders in militating disaster prevalence in our contemporary society. The method used in assembling relevant data is a review of the relevant literature. The study found out that there are diverse ways of categorizing stakeholders of disaster management in previous studies. This study, after perusing through existing literature came out with the harmonisation by identifying the key stakeholders which include but not limited to government and its parastatal, NGOs, donors, the private sector, media, academia, regional cooperation, community/citizen and the immediate environment. Dwelling on the tenets of stakeholders’ theory, the study is of the opinion that much could be achieved in the area of disaster management if all the stakeholders are fully recognised, well-coordinated and respected. In conclusion, this study provides useful information related to the role of stakeholders in mitigating disaster prevalence to ensure effective disaster management.
