Strategic, business and personal risk mitigation and capacity building through information and knowledge based processes in the Indo Asia Pacific.
Disaster Risks

About

Disaster Risks assume importance as the Indo Pacific is vulnerable to a large number of disasters. The frequency of disasters is increasing in India and globally. The disasters pose a serious threat to India’s economy, its population and sustainable development. Mitigation of disaster risks assumes importance for which information, awareness and capacity building is the way ahead. Capacity building is an ongoing process that equips officials, stakeholders and community to perform their functions in a better manner during a crisis/disaster. In the process of capacity building, we must include elements of human resource development, i.e., individual training, organizational development such as improving the functioning of groups and organizations and institutional development. Disasters touch multitudes of life across the entire spectrum of our society. It is seen that uniformed forces like NDRF, SDRF, the Armed Forces, CAPF, Police, and Fire & Emergency services often go beyond the call of duty to save lives. The Government’s efforts to mitigate the effects of the disaster and save lives through effective response are often supplemented by the community at large, selfless volunteers, dedicated NGOs, conscientious corporates and academic & research institutions and individuals. A number of volunteers work alongside our relief agencies silently but effectively. They often risk their lives and limb in the service of humanity but their contributions go unacknowledged. Also, the good work by various NGOs, corporate entities and institutions that step up to the call of the hour to augment Government’s response and efforts in aid to the society needs to be recognized.
