  4. 4. India is vulnerable to a large number of disasters • Approx. 60% of the landmass is prone to Earthquakes • Approx.12% (About 40 million hectares of land) is prone to flood and river erosion. • Approx. 68% of the cultivable area is vulnerable to drought//landslides/avalanches • About 5770 km of coastline out of a total 7516 km is prone to Cyclone and Tsunami CT.Lakshmanan
  5. 5. Vulnerability is increasing with • Rising population • Haphazard Urbanization • Developments in High-Risk zones • Environmental Degradation • Climate Change etc. CT.Lakshmanan
  6. 6. Tsunami Damage CT.Lakshmanan
  7. 7. Tsunami Damage CT.Lakshmanan
  8. 8. DISASTER MANAGEMENT CONTINUUM Disaster Strikes CT.Lakshmanan
  9. 9. Disaster Management Cycle Organisations Involved  Prevention Research Institutions (Sponsored Research) Ministry of Earth Science (IMD, DOD, DST) Ministry of Water Resources Ministry of Agriculture  Mitigation Central Govt. (NDMA. MHA, MUD, MoEF and other related ministries and departments) State Govt. (Various Departments) District/Local Administration and NGO’s  Preparedness Central Govt. (NDMA. MHA, MUD, MoEF) State Govt. District/Local Administration and NGO’s CT.Lakshmanan
  10. 10. Disaster Management Cycle Cont. Organisations Involved  Response Central Govt. (NDMA. MHA) State Govt. District/Local Administration and NGO’s  Relief Central Govt. (NDMA. MHA) State Govt. District/Local Administration and NGO’s    Rehabilitation Reconstruction Long term Recovery Central Govt. (Integrated efforts of various ministries and departments) State Govt. District/Local Administration and NGO’s Central Govt. (Integrated efforts of various ministries and departments) State Govt. District/Local Administration and NGO’s Central, State, Local Govt. and NGO’s CT.Lakshmanan
  11. 11. Disasters offer a unique opportunity to learn where we have gone wrong…. Preparedness and Mitigation of Disasters is the most important part of Disaster Management while strengthening our response capabilities CT.Lakshmanan
  12. 12. Disaster Mitigation Natural Hazards cannot be prevented, however with mitigation measures the effects/damages could be reduced India’s three pronged approach  Mitigation measures integrated with the ongoing developmental projects  National-level mitigation projects in high priority areas (Initiated by NDMA with the help of all concerned ministries, departments and states)  State-level mitigation projects (Assistance in guidelines, plans and implementation by NDMA) CT.Lakshmanan
  13. 13. CT.Lakshmanan
  14. 14. Mitigation Measures • Integrated multi-hazard approach (emphasis on cyclone and tsunami risk in coastal areas) • Early warning system for cyclones and tsunamis • Evacuation plans (with emphasis on self reliance for sustenance with the coastal community) • Capacity building • Training of all concerned • Public awareness programmes • Hazard Mapping and Vulnerability Analysis • Risk Identification, zoning and mapping CT.Lakshmanan
  15. 15. Mitigation Measures Cont. Structural Mitigation Measures  Seawalls and Coral reefs  Tsunami breakwaters (to provide cushion against Tsunami and Cyclone)  Increasing the river dike height  Tsunami and Cyclone Shelters (safe places to flee)  Evacuation routes identification CT.Lakshmanan
  16. 16. Mitigation Measures Cont. Structural Mitigation Measures  Permanent structures strictly according to BIS codes  Retrofitting of vulnerable structures for tsunami/cyclone resistance  Retrofitting of important buildings I. Fire stations / police stations/ army structures/ hospitals II. VIP residences / offices/ railways, airport, etc. III. Schools/colleges IV. Hazardous industries V. Other critical structures (i.e. power stations, warehouses, oil and other storage tanks etc) CT.Lakshmanan
  17. 17. Mitigation Measures Cont. Non-Structural Mitigation Measures  Education  Public Awareness  Information  Risk Communication  Training to all concerned (Govt. officials, search and rescue workers, volunteers, women, children, elderly, local community as a whole) CT.Lakshmanan
  18. 18. Mitigation Measures Cont. Non-Structural Mitigation Measures  Coastal regulations Zone Act – Strict implementation (no development within 500 m of the high tide line with elevation of less than 10 m above m.s.l)  Land use Zoning in accordance with CRZ  Natural Bioshields (Mangroves) and shelterbelt plantations (Casuarina)  Maintaining Natural Sand dunes  Maintaining and promoting beach development CT.Lakshmanan
  19. 19. Mitigation Measures Cont. Non-Structural Mitigation Measures  Risk transfer in highly vulnerable areas (Insurance)  Network of local knowledge centers along the coast lines ( Training and Emergency communication)  Reducing Vulnerability  Diverse Livelihood options  Micro Finance  Empowerment  Gender sensitive development CT.Lakshmanan
