Disaster management
Flood of opportunities
India being a nation where natural calamities strike every now and then, the need for trained disaster management professionals is felt acutely, especially in the wake of the tsunami, writes Sunit Dhawan
atural disasters take a heavy toll of human life and property year after year. The United Nations estimates that in the past two decades, nearly three million lives have been lost to natural disasters and some 800 million affected by them. Every year, at least four cyclones of varying intensity hit parts of India's nearly 6,000-km-long coastline. Besides, earthquakes of varying magnitudes rock northern India.
