Introduction and Rationale

Disaster management is emerging globally as a ield of study that deals with an increasing range of risks and vulnerabilities that societies, nations, and communities have to understand and learn to cope with. The expansion of the scope of the term disaster beyond its original deinition, referring solely to natural hazards, has made disaster studies an important aspect of the way we study the impact of shocks, of varied origin and types, on society and peoples. Even if the subject began originally mostly in the practitioner’s domain, it is now increasingly a ield of study that combines theoretical perspectives and understanding with a range of skills and techniques that have become increasingly sophisticated.

For developing societies, disaster risk reduction is increasingly understood as an integral part of development, especially in the era of climate change, and the vulnerabilities of the poor and marginalized have come to be recognized as the key to understanding the disproportionate impact of disasters in the developing world. Especially in the developing world, disaster risk reduction, disaster response and post-disaster recovery need to be examined and evaluated from the perspectives of justice, equity and social inclusion. In India, disaster management as a ield of systematic study and practice is still in its initial stages, providing tremendous scope for exploration, research and the evolution of appropriate techniques and best practices.

The Certiicate in Development, Vulnerability and Disaster Response, ofered by the Jamsetji Tata Centre for Disaster Management, aims at providing a basic understanding of the various components of disaster management.
