administration of disasters
Explanation:

I have found quite a number of instances, in which the term “administration of disasters” is used. Below is just a small number of my search results:

This seems to be a very common term, along with its variations, like "administration against/in/during disasters", etc.

Hope that this helps.

I think it's a toss up between DISASTER MANAGEMENT and ADMINISTRATION OF DISASTERS but in the case I choose the latter because later in the same documents appears 'manejo de desastres' to which would correspond FuadMYahya's answer. The second proposal refers to other kinds of administration in disaster situations.
Thanks to all!

disaster management


Explanation:
See the following citations:

http://pdm.medicine.wisc.edu/cuny4.htm

“Modern disaster management goes beyond post-event disaster assistance; it includes pre-disaster planning and preparedness activities, organizational planning, public relations, and many other fields. Crisis management is important but, in reality, is only a part of the overall responsibility of the disaster manager.”


http://www.library.ca.gov/CRB/96/05/over_2.html

“If it cannot be empirically shown that at least some disaster response organizations and response systems come close to or enter into chaos, then disaster management has little to learn from chaos theory. More to the point, does the "single law" and "universal route" apply to a disaster response?”
