COVID-19, Disaster Risk Management and Our Future
From 30th January, 2020, i.e. the day on which India witnessed its first COVID-19 case, till today, the country has seen a lot of ups and downs – series of lockdowns, followed by a series of unlocks and now the second wave. COVID-19 has become of the worst crisis of recent times. ‘Uncertainty’, which has always been a preferred phrase, used in articles and scientific journals to express the unpredictability of future, was experienced by the entire world and India is no exception to that. People realised that this is indeed an uncertain world where there is often a failure to predict the occurrences of extremes, people barely manage to understand and predict the systemic consequences of actions taken. The pandemic reinforced that humanity is still stuck in an universe where it habitually relies more on response, rather than on preparation. The Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management (GIDM), as an apex institute of the state has decided to conduct a mini-online course to answer many of the pertinent questions that have emerged from this crisis.
The course is online. There's NO COURSE FEE. The course has a maximum of 30 participants.
Apply before 26th May, 2021.
