Who all have joined the programme launched by National Institute of Disaster Management(NIDM) as a self learning mode as a e-based course with a technical partner C-DAC , as very well known institution which provide technical expertise.
NIDM since its inception, have been conducting various programme on capacity building for the civil servants and also try to bring out some officials from the private sector and civil societies too. But still many of them are left out and we have not been able to reach them. In order to enhance our reach and also to inform to people about disaster management, this is more which we have been adopted with the help of C-DAC. Important is that, over the years, we have seen, India is experiencing different kinds of disasters. In some of the disasters, we have succeeded very very importantly in terms of reducing the large number of death by building our own capacity, and this has been recognized globally. Recently, in the year 2015, Sendai declaration took place and everywhere the success stories of India is quoted widely. Why I am quoting this as information which helps people in reducing their own risks. Self study course is also one of them kind of initiative.
NIDM organizes programme here at the institute level, at the state level at the district level. Also NIDM has been working with the technology to reach out , so we have adopted satellite based programme as well. The third programme the satellite programme where people cannot access, now this is the initiative where any person who are interested in disaster management anybody can go through on the website, login and go through the experiences of learning disaster risk reduction. The uniqueness of this programme is that you are getting exposed with different contents, very easy learning process and also you are knowing about your gradual process in the programme by self evaluation mechanism, so that is the beauty of the course, enhance your information, enhance your knowledge, and enhance your skill and if you get interested further the world is open for you and it is NIDM or any other institution in India or outside India you can approach with. But this is small humble beginning of National Institute of Disaster Management, but I am sure this will give maximum benefit to it.
Thank you very much to all of you.
