About Disaster Management Centre

Natural   Disaster   Management   Centre   at   ATI   was   set   up   in   1995   and   is   mainly funded     by     Government     of     India.     The     Centre     conducts     regular     training programmes,     seminars     and     workshops     on     natural     disaster     management, environment    and    ecology    for    officials    and    elected    representatives    of    local government   bodies.   The   approach   to   disaster   management   has   undergone   a radical   shift   in   recent   times   from   one   based   on   relief   and   rehabilitation   to   a   more comprehensive approach putting emphasis on preparedness and mitigation.
