Disaster Mitigation

The majority of disasters in India are hydro-meteorological in nature. With droughts still affecting a large number of people and floods occurring frequently along the major river systems these natural and manmade disasters cannot be ignored.

To mitigate these disasters ‘SES‘ conducts specific activities including Participative Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (PVCA), Hazard Mapping, Multi-hazard Risk Assessments, community-based disaster risk reduction, planned relocation, resilient livelihoods development, ...early warning systems, DRR policy and strategy, disaster preparedness and hazard-informed emergency response.
Our activities focus on “build back better” goals such as recovery and reconstruction through integration of DRR measures into the restoration of physical infrastructure and societal systems, and into the revitalization of livelihoods, economies and the environment.
