Prime Minister of India has given a 10-point agenda on disaster management. In order to address the capacity, skill and knowledge gap, Agenda 6 of the 10 point agenda of the Hon’ble Prime Minister emphasizes the need to “develop a network of universities to work on disaster issues in India”.
Furthermore, the Agenda 6 envisions enhancing global & regional level actions under Priority 1 (d) in order “To promote common efforts in partnership with the scientific and technological community, academia and the private sector to establish, disseminate and share good practices internationally”.
To address this, The National Institute of Disaster Management, Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India has set up the India University and Institute Network for Disaster Risk Reduction (IUIN-DRR). In recognition of the work done by Dada Ramchand Bakhru Sindhu Mahavidyalaya Nagpur in the field of Disaster Management, Dada Ramchand Bakhru Sindhu Mahavidyalaya has got the prestigious membership of IUIN-DRR along with few esteemed universities and higher education institutions in India.
With this membership Dada Ramchand Bakhru Sindhu Mahavidyalaya has become the only higher education institution in Nagpur to implement Agenda 6.
All members in this network come together to share knowledge resources related to disaster risk management amongst themselves and beyond to the larger group of stakeholders working on DRR.
IUIN-DRR members work in close collaboration to conduct education and research, share findings and find ways forward in a country that is increasingly at threat due to climate change impacts and disaster risks.
The university members work closely with governments, international agencies and corporate and civil society organizations to establish collaborations that eventually lead to resilient communities and robust policies towards this goal. IUIN-DRR reflects each member’s commitment to implementation-oriented education and research in the field of disaster risk reduction.
