Data User’s Training/Workshop for Senior Secondary Teachers of DEHRADUN (25-27 July, 2010)



Shri B. Bhattacharjee, Member, National Disaster, Management Authority Shri B. Bhattacharjee addressed all by saying on some issues such as: • Data on disaster management is important in GDP growth and development of the nation.
• He said that our country is the worst disaster prone area in the world.
• Again he mentioned that we cannot stop natural disasters but we can manage disasters by adopting right measures.
• According to him, there are many concerned issues which are not given priorities yet.
• Metaphorically he said that the first wicket to fall is communication at the time of the disaster. He felt that the warning systems in India are still in infancy stage hence, we need an advanced forecasting system. He urged the gathering to try to see those gaps and contribute at their level to fill those gaps.
• He emphasized that steps must be taken to develop capacity-building of community in general and young generation in particular.
• He made an appeal to the gathering to help NDMA to prevent damages caused by disasters.
