Introduction



To take the learning's across to Stakeholders, Responsenet with the Support of National Disaster Management Authority (GOI), International Resource Group (IRG) USAID, and co organized with Omaxe Foundation, held an International Conference on Disaster Management with a focus on Supply Chains on 19th March 2007 at Pragati Maiden New Delhi.



The Conference was a platform chosen to highlight the most critical Goal of Disaster Management, supply chains, to reach out promptly in both the urban and the remotest areas to reduce the vulnerability to disasters with the integrated technological advancement and collaboration of likeminded organizations.



This conference called for a multi-pronged strategy involving the Industry, International Agencies, Non Government Organisations, Community Based Organisations, and Institutions to put together resources and learning of efforts in preparedness and managing disasters by providing relief products and services in a reliable and effective manner with greater added value.



The conference highlighted the following:



o Preparedness and Coordinating Response for Disaster Management, Reduction and Mitigation


o Means and methods for establishing effective models of Relief, Rehabilitation, and Preparedness, involving Industry, Government, Organizations working on Rescue and Relief and stakeholders for supply chain optimisation.



  • Sharing Innovative Ideas and best practices and the importance of innovations in Disaster management.

  • Coordination by networking knowledge and shared resources for effective approach, methods and tools for disaster risk management and mitigation.

  • Potential of the private sector in providing both emergency help and long term assistance at the time of Natural Disasters.

  • Promotion and facilitation of the sharing of information and knowledge about disasters through use of Information Communication Technology, and meeting the relief needs arising from such a situation.


Floods, Earthquakes, Landslides, Droughts and Cyclones are recurrent phenomena, but if preparedness can be managed, the impact of such disasters can be reduced significantly.
