India disaster management reference handbook 2018

This guide serves as an initial source of information for those individuals preparing for disaster risk reduction (DRR) activities or immediate deployment with India partner responders in crisis. Additionally, it highlights the important role India plays in preparing for, mitigating, responding to, and recovering from a natural or man-made disaster in the Indo-Pacific region. It also provides decision makers, planners, responders and disaster management practitioners’ greater insight into India’s Disaster Management (DM) capabilities, thereby enhancing regional civil-military response. Discussion includes key areas such as the India’s organizational structure for domestic and foreign disaster management, international DM agreements, regional training programs and exercise support. An in-depth understanding of India’s and other partner nation capabilities improves collaboration before, during and after a disaster response. Therefore, this handbook focuses on strengthening partnerships and is not an assessment of India’s capabilities.

The Disaster Management Reference Handbook Series is intended to provide decision makers, planners, responders and disaster management practitioners with an overview of the disaster management structure, policies, laws, and plans for each country covered in the series. Natural and man-made threats most likely to affect the country are discussed. The handbooks also provide basic country background information, including cultural, demographic, geographic, infrastructure, and other relevant data. The handbooks include information on key national entities involved in disaster management, disaster response and preparation, and the military’s role in disaster relief. Information on UN agencies, international NGOs, major local NGOs, and key U.S. agencies and programs in the country, are also provided.
