    The ECDRM Division of NIDM signed a Statement of Intent (SoI) with the WFP for a collaborative initiative to develop the guidelines and training package for “food and nutrition strategies for Emergencies, preparedness and response” and take the recommendations forward to explore the ways and means to mainstream the food and nutrition security agenda in India’s disaster management response. This shall be achieved in three phases:

    Phase I: Development of national guidelines and training curriculum for integration of food and nutrition strategies in EPR package of India

    Phase II: Supporting capacity strengthening and training for food and nutrition needs in emergencies

    Phase III: Organization of an international level consultation on Food and Nutrition in Emergency Preparedness and Response for benefit of the other countries

  3. National Environment Forest and Climate Disaster Management Plan

    ECDRM division of National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) is preparing National Environment Forest and Climate Disaster Management Plan for the Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) utilizing the legal mandate under the Disaster Management Act 2005 and the National DM Policy 2009. This DM Plan would be: addressing Multi-hazard risk and vulnerabilities, Multi-layer approach to resilience building, and covering all aspects of environment system in India as a whole with focus on environmental sector as depicted under the allocation of business to the Ministry. It will include infrastructure / establishments, resources, people, services and activities associated with the mandates of the MoEFCC including, Ministry of Mines, Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Ministry of Chemical and Fertilizers, etc., their interdependence among and with other sectors/Ministries/Departments and stakeholders at various levels.

The plan would be drawn in coherence with the National DM Plan.

  4. National Chemicals and Petrochemicals Disaster Management Plan (NCPC-DMP)

    The frequency and severity of chemical and petrochemical hazards have increased in recent years due to the rapid development of the chemical and petrochemical industries. The ECDRM Division of NIDM is facilitating the preparation of the 'National Chemicals and Petrochemicals Disaster Management Plan (NCPC-DMP)' for the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers (MoC&F), Government of India, with the aim to strengthen the resilience of chemicals and petrochemicals sector of India to deal with disasters and weather uncertainties. The Plan would also address the disaster safety and resilience of physical assets and resources associated with the sector.

  5. Climate Adaptive Planning for Resilience and Sustainability Development in Multi-Hazard Environment (CAP-RES)

    The Department of Science & Technology (DST), Govt. of India, under the National Knowledge Mission on Climate Change (NKMCC) has supported the programme Climate Adaptive Planning for Resilience and Sustainability Development in Multi-Hazard Environment (CAP-RES) to be implemented by CECR-ECDRM division of NIDM. The project CAP-RES focuses on five broad thematic areas which are significantly important for addressing the present and the future climate induced disaster risk.

  6. Health Adaptation and Resilience: Advancing Strategic Knowledge and Capacities (NIDM-WHO)

    The ECDRM division of NIDM with support of World Health Organization (WHO) India is implementing the project “Health Adaptation and Resilience: Advancing Strategic Knowledge and Capacities” (HER-CAP). The main objectives of the project are as follows:

    • Improving Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction of Healthcare systems.
    • The integration of adaptation strategies by addressing knowledge, planning and capacity gaps in healthcare system resilience in India.
  7. National Agriculture Disaster Management Plan (NADMP)

    Indian agriculture sector is greatly affected by natural and human induced hazards and disasters, like, Drought, Flood, and Cyclone etc. All these hazards have the potentials to create risks of disasters when exposed to vulnerable physical, economic, social and environmental conditions. ECDRM division of NIDM is preparing a National Agriculture Disaster Management Plan (NADMP) for Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare. The plan will be addressing the present and the future vulnerabilities and risk of agricultural systems in India towards disasters, and would provide a roadmap for managing the actual and potential events of disasters.

  8. Crisis Management Plan to deal with Contamination of Water Bodies

    NIDM would cooperate with the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in developing its Crisis Management Plan and allied capacity building endeavor to deal with contaminated water bodies, under a designated process framework. MoU was signed with CPCB-MoEFCC on 16th January 2020 for the same. The plan would cover all the phases of crisis management, preparedness, warning, detection & assessment, protection & mitigation, response and situation management, restoration and recovery, along with plan for capacity building and financial strategies.

  9. Child Centric Disaster Risk Reduction (CCDRR) Centre

    The Child Centric Disaster Risk Reduction (CCDRR) Centre of National Institute of Disaster Management, Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, housed at NIDM South Campus, Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, is being jointly promoted by National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) and United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) on last week of December 2018. This project is envisioned for three years with activities to be conducted in three phases. The centre is also working closely with Administrative Training Institutes (ATIs), State Disaster Management Authorities (SDMAs) of state governments and sectoral institutes in India. The major components of CCDRR centre is training, research, advocacy and consultation on Child centric disaster risk reduction to address UNICEF four DRR goals as follows.

    1. DRR for children and women is a national and local priority.
    2. Different risks faced by girls, boys and women are identified and addressed.
    3. Safer and more resilient conditions for girls, boys and women.
    4. Strengthened humanitarian preparedness, response and recovery through capacity development.
  10. India University and Institution Network for Disaster Risk Reduction (IUINDRR-NIDM)

    Building on the Hyogo Framework for Action, which featured ‘knowledge, innovation and education to build a culture of safety and resilience as a key priority, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 identifies “Understanding Disaster Risks” as its first Priority for Action. Enhancing awareness including through formal and non-formal education, research, civic and professional education and training at all levels have been identified as some critical means to achieve this. Partnering with Higher Education Institutions (HEI), universities and other science and technology communities have been envisioned for promoting innovative technology and research, facilitate capacity development, and contribute to decision-making for addressing local risks and the needs of the most vulnerable.

    The background of this Network has emerged from Hon’ble Prime Minister’s 10 point Agenda which was outlined by him before the leaders of the Asian Countries during the Asian Ministerial Conference conducted by Government of India in the year 2016 in New Delhi. The Agenda 6 of Hon’ble PM 10 point agenda stresses on the need to “Develop a network of universities to work on disaster issues in India”.

    In this network, besides NIDM, several esteemed Universities and Institutions will come together to share knowledge, resources related to disaster risk management amongst themselves and to the larger group of stakeholders working on DRR. This Network will also have representations from University Grants Commission, All India Council for Technical Education and Association of Indian Universities.

  11. India Disaster Resource Network

    IDRN was initiated by Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) under the GOI - UNDP Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Programme, in the year 2003.

    Considering the national importance of IDRN, Ministry of Home Affairs entrusted National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) with the responsibility of monitoring and maintaining IDRN since 2008.

    IDRN is a very useful tool as it provides necessary information about equipment, human resources and critical supplies, which are available at district level with the line departments and agencies.
