Mission

To reduce earthquake landslide hazard in this region. Kangra region was devastated during 1905 great Kangra earthquake and is located in between major thrust zones which are seismically very active. The region has most of the population located on fan sediments which are prone to site amplification. On the other hand the area is also very prone to active slide zones. The present focus is to mitigate the risk by taking pre-disaster studies in the region to make community disaster resilient.

Disaster Reduction Goal

To follow Yokahoma stretegy and work in Hyogo Framework and reduce seismic and landslidee risk in the area.

Policies and Programmes in DRR

Earthquake awareness programme is in place fro the school children named : "HIMSELP" where sixty school level seismographs are installed in Himachal and Garhwal Himalaya with a motive to inculcate the culture of disaster prevention among school children and then to the community at large.

Site amplification studies of fan sediments areas are in progress where large population of the area is located.

Hazard scenario are being generated fro 1905 Kangra earthquake considering the present population.

Making disaster risk reduction a policy priority, institutional strengthening (HFA 1)

Earthquake awareness programme is in place fro the school children named : "HIMSELP" where sixty school level seismographs are installed in Himachal and Garhwal Himalaya with a motive to inculcate the culture of disaster prevention among school children and then to the community at large.

Risk assessment and early warning systems (HFA 2)

Site amplification studies of fan sediments areas are in progress where large population of the area is located.

Hazard scenario are being generated fro 1905 Kangra earthquake considering the present population.

Education, information and public awareness (HFA 3)

Earthquake awareness programme is in place fro the school children named : "HIMSELP" where sixty school level seismographs are installed in Himachal and Garhwal Himalaya with a motive to inculcate the culture of disaster prevention among school children and then to the community at large.

Reducing underlying risk factors (HFA 4)
