India - Institutional Strengthening Mission

UN-SPIDER supported a training workshop on the topic “Space technology for Disaster risk management and emergency response” at the National Institute of Disaster Management, New Delhi, from 2 to 4 April 2012. It was the third such training workshop organized jointly by the National Institute of Disaster Management and UN-SPIDER.

Dates: 

Mon, 02/04/2012 to Wed, 04/04/2012

Host Institution: 

India National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM)

Mission Team: 

Experts from UN-SPIDER and NIDM

Mission Profile: 

The event provided a platform to the State Disaster Management Authorities and providers of space based information (State Remote Sensing Applications Centres, National Remote Sensing Centres of Indian Space Research Organisation) to discuss latest systems, tools, technologies, products and best practices. The resources persons provided the latest trends in disaster risk reduction and space technology interventions. UN-SPIDER and NIDM have hosted such events since 2010. This was third such workshop in the series based on the recommendations of previous workshops.

India – Institutional Strengthening Mission

In spite of India’s prominence in the domain of space technology and applications, it was still deemed necessary to assess the use and implementation of the latter in disaster management. In January 2010 a first workshop organized by UN-SPIDER and the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) took place. To continue these efforts and follow up with the recommendations proposed in 2010, a second workshop was organized.

Dates: 

Mon, 28/03/2011 to Wed, 30/03/2011

Mission Team: 

Experts from UN-SPIDER and the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM)

Mission Profile: 

The second NIDM/UN-SPIDER workshop on ‘Space Technology Application in Disaster Management and Emergency Response’ took place at the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM), New Delhi, from 28 to 30 March 2011. The aim of the workshop was to make available knowledge on applications of space technology for disaster management to disaster managers and to help in bridging the gap between the geospatial and disaster management functionaries at various levels, both within States of India and of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC).

Mission Outcome: 

During the Workshop, the participants shared their experiences of using of space-based information in their respective countries and Indian states. The workshop included panel discussions and deliberations by participants. As an outcome of the workshop, participants provided recommendations, based on the discussions and exercises on the following topics: • Lessons learned from recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, • Self assessment of geographic information preparedness for disaster management

India - Institutional Strengthening Mission

In spite of India’s prominence in the domain of space technology and applications, it was still deemed necessary to assess the use and implementation of the latter in disaster management. That need was specifically taken up by the State Disaster Management Authorities (SMDA) who are mainly responsible for implementing the policy guidelines provided by the central Government of India. Consequently a workshop was organized.

Dates: 

Mon, 11/01/2010 to Wed, 13/01/2010

Mission Team: 

Experts of UN-SPIDER and the India National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM)

Mission Profile: 

A workshop was set up for experts from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), NIDM, UN-SPIDER as well as other disaster management authorities to extensively share their experiences and knowledge on Remote Sensing and GIS for disaster management.

Mission Outcome: 

Various recommendations were made during the workshop discussions, addressing state-level policy interventions that are needed for capacity development and access to space-based and geo-information. The need for effective data sharing in order to utilize that geo-information for disaster management purposes was stressed. The importance of circulating these recommendations amongst state authorities was also noted. Finally, the workshop yielded a virtual community (e-group), created by the NIDM, directly connected to the ISRO Disaster Management System, and where UN-SPIDER will be able to provide constant updates on recent advances in the use of space-based technology for disaster management.
