The present study attempts to identify the areas prone to different types of drought, i.e., meteorological, hydrological and agricultural droughts. The report presents a detailed scientific analysis of the spatial, temporal and typological distribution of drought at district level for the period during 1998-2009 in the region of Bundelkhand.

This paper argues that climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) practices at a ground level need to be implemented through structural and non-structural measures like constructing protective infrastructure and increasing community capacity, effective planning and making specific investments.

“Environmental Legislation for Disaster Risk Management”, training module is based on the analysis of global context of environmental laws, policies and approaches of integrating environment and disaster risk management.

This publication addresses climate change and disaster management issues in South Asia, and more particularly in India.

This report is intended to provide an overview of the concept of ecosystem approach to disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR), natural resource management and disaster linkages, incorporating Eco-DRR concepts in various phases of disaster management, including post disaster recovery in wide range of human and natural environmental settings.

The ‘Environmental Knowledge for Disaster Risk Management (ekDRM)’ project aims at capacity development in disaster risk management by advancing environmental knowledge, particularly the use of statistics and space technology including remote sensing & GIS for decision support systems (DSS); spatial planning for Na-tech disasters within the

This document on chemical disaster management contains detailed descriptive lectures, talks of holistic disaster management (DM) framework, integration of chemical risk to holisitc and multi-hazard risk management, site assessment, legal framework, district level DM planning, as well as capacity building.
