Training module on cyclone risk management

Source(s):  Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management (GIDM)

The Regional Climate Models (RCMs) predict an augmentation in the intensity of cyclonic activity, which has been evident recently. The Year 2019 recorded one of the most active cyclone seasons for Gujarat as six cyclonic activities were observed in the Arabian Sea out of which four cyclones were of intensity “Very Severe Cyclonic Storm” and above.

It is imperative to mainstream cyclone risk reduction in developmental planning and to adopt an inclusive approach towards risk reduction to ensure the sustainability of developmental initiatives and to widen its reach to cover every citizen. The need for implementation support and enhancement of the capacity of institutions and individual dealing with Cyclone Risk Management is absolutely essential. This module on Cyclone Risk Management enables facilitators to adequately equip themselves in conducting training programs more effectively.

The module has been designed in a way to avoid the use of complex scientific/ technical terminologies and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) jargons, which usually becomes confusing to a commoner after a point. The training module focuses on all parameters of cyclones risk like cyclone hazard and vulnerability assessment, relevant exposure, mitigation measures and response/recovery plans without going into the technicalities. The ultimate objective of the module is to empower every participant to be able to assess cyclone risks and get themselves acquainted with cyclone preparedness and response/recovery plan.
