1 NATIONAL SEMINAR ON DISASTER MANAGEMENT NOVEMBER 19-20, 2009 ORGANISED BY NATIONAL CIVIL DEFENCE COLLEGE NAGPUR In Collaboration with NEERI (National Environment Engineering Research Institute, Nagpur) INTRODUCTION: DMI (Disaster Management Institute, Bhopal)
2 Impact of Climate Change has become a real and fast growing problem for our Country and the World. As urgency around the issue continues to grow, so does the scientific concern for changes in earth climate that will adversely affect future of our planet and those who inhabit it. Climate related disasters have brought wide spread misery and huge economic losses to India adversely affecting Public health, Agriculture, Water resources and Biodiversity. The situation is foreseen to worsen as humans continue to pump green house gases into the atmosphere without being aware of the contribution they are making for their own downfall. Over the past decades, climate change has become one of the most heavily researched subjects in science. Moreover, in the last two years the impact has become prominently visible with an erratic monsoon creating drought in Northern India and wide spread flooding in Southern India. There may be serious differences amongst the world community on each country s contribution to this impact but invariably it is the community members which have to bear most of the consequences. The World to-day faces two challenges dealing with climate change, first to reduce Carbon dioxide (CO2) emission by moving to alternative technologies as early as possible and second to build community resilience to deal with recurring impact of Climate change which now have become inevitable. In view of this, the National Civil Defence College is organizing this National Seminar on Disaster Management in order to build scientific knowledge base for generating awareness amongst Civil Defence Volunteers and preparing an Action Plan of remedies for the Community at Risk. I request for nomination of large number of delegates from your Organization / States for participation in this National Seminar especially, wardens and volunteers who can form the backbone for initiating volunteer action for reduction of climate change impacts.
