Saarc Summit Holistic Management of Disaster
India

Indian Subcontinent is among the world’s most disaster prone areas due to its geo-climatic conditions and large population. Floods, cyclones, earthquakes, landslides, avalanches, droughts, tsunami etc. are major natural disasters causing huge loss to life and property and adverse impact on economy and development. A need has always been felt to create a platform where all available information on disaster s is compiled to be used for its effective management. The SAARC Disaster Management Centre has developed the concept of India Disaster Knowledge Network (IDKN), a web GIS based portal within South Asian Disaster Knowledge Network (SADKN)that provides a wide spectrum of resources, knowledge and services.
