|Offering in Disaster Management
||By A Special Correspondent|
Every year, India faces the threat of massive natural disasters, from floods, cyclones and landslides to earthquakes and droughts. The death toll from these disasters-including human lives and livelihoods, destruction of homes and public infrastructure and huge financial losses cripples the backbone of entire country. Unfortunately, natural disasters themselves cannot be fully averted. However, investing in disaster prevention and disaster risk reduction (DRR) programs can substantially reduce the economic and social fallout when they occur.
As a major step put forward by Indian Government towards building preparedness for disaster management (DM), Disaster Management Act was unanimously passed in the Parliament in December, 2005, leading to the formation of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) as the apex body at the national level (with Prime Minister of India as Chairperson of the National Authority), State Disaster Management Authority (SDMA) at the state level (with respective Chief Ministers of the State as the Chairperson) and District Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) at the district level (with respective Collector or District Magistrate or Deputy Commissioner, as the case may be, of the district, who shall be chairperson). Further details are available in DM Act 2005.
Clause (p) of Sub Section (2) of Section 22 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005 says that the State Executive Committee shall “ensure that communication systems are in order…..”.
Communication is the first most priority in responding to disasters in an effective and timely manner. Keeping communication system in order during the most adverse circumstances is one of the key requirements of today. The holistic Disaster management cycle has four overlapping phases: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery.
