15-16 May, 2017, Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi
Over the years, India has been able to establish a holistic Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) apparatus at National, State and District levels. The legal framework and the institutional structure are gradually taking root in dealing with disaster risk management. Disaster Risk Reduction, being a cross-cutting development issue, requires political commitment, scientific knowledge, careful development planning, application of technology, law enforcement, community participation, early warning systems and effective disaster preparedness and response mechanism. There is a need to foster an enabling environment for developing a culture of prevention and risk reduction to facilitate integration of disaster management into development planning in various sectors and at all levels, from the National to the local, through a participatory decision making process.
The 2nd meeting of the National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (NPDRR) was held on 15-16 May 2017 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on the theme ‘Disaster Risk Reduction for Sustainable Development: Making India Resilient by 2030.’
