I am pleased to learn that the “Fifth World Congress on Disaster Management” is being organised in New Delhi between 24th – 27th November, 2021 by ‘Disaster Management Initiatives and Convergence Society’, Hyderabad in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, National Disaster Management Authority, National Institute of Disaster Management and other scientific and technical organizations as knowledge partners.
I am certain the Conference will provide a useful platform to researchers, practitioners and policy makers and experts from across academic disciplines and development sectors around the world, for detailed deliberations on issues pertaining to logistics, human resources, technology, finance etc. for building resilience to various kinds of disasters.
The outbreak of the COVID 19 virus globally has not only posed unprecedented challenges but has also provided opportunities for reviewing the existing systems, frameworks, laws, regulations and practices. The lessons learnt by the National, State and Local governments, social and medical communities and other stakeholders in dealing with and containing the pandemic have been invaluable and are still evolving.
I am sure the Conference will come forward with meaningful solutions and effective strategies towards mitigating disasters, enhancing preparedness and building resilience through collaborative efforts of the State and the civil society.
I extend my good wishes for the success of the 5th World Congress on Disaster Management.
