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

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

Disaster Management Cycle Cont.:

Slide 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

Disaster Mitigation :

Disaster Mitigation 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) Natural Hazards cannot be prevented, however with mitigation measures the effects/damages could be reduced

Slide 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

Slide 15:

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 Mitigation Measures Cont.

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) Mitigation Measures Cont.

Slide 17:

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) Mitigation Measures Cont.

Slide 18:

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 Mitigation Measures Cont.

Slide 19:

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 Mitigation Measures Cont.
