Publication: Ecosystem Approach to Disaster Risk Reduction

The National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) of India published the e-book "Ecosystem Approach to Disaster Risk Reduction", which is freely available on the UN-SPIDER Knowledge Portal.

The publication focuses on the importance of protecting and improving ecosystems for reducing disaster risk. It gives general introductions to the topic of Eco-Disaster Risk Reduction and showcases specific issues such as coastal hazard mitigation, landslide risk, urban flood risk or fire management. Furthermore, it indicates practical strategies and tools to better include ecological approaches into disaster risk reduction.

NIDM is one of UN-SPIDER's partners in conducting its Capacity Building activities. UN-SPIDER and NIDM had jointly supported the training workshop on "Space technology applications in disaster management and emergency response" in New Delhi, India in March 2012.
