The 4th World Congress on Disaster Management (WCDM-2019) is being organized in Mumbai from 29 January to 1 February 2019 to deliberate on some of the most critical issues and challenges of implementation of the global frameworks on building resilience to disasters. 

Jointly organized by the Government of Maharashtra,the  Disaster Management Initiatives and Convergence Society (DMICS), the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay and Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai, WCDM-2019 has been designed to be the largest assembly on disaster management outside the UN system.

The World Congress on Disaster Management (WCDM) is an initiative of DMICS to bring researchers, policy makers and practitioners from around the world together to discuss various challenging issues related to disaster risk management. 

The mission of WCDM is to promote interaction of science, policy and practices to enhance understanding of risks and advance actions for reducing... read more

The Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (CSSTEAP) was established in India in November 1995 with its headquarters in Dehradun at Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) which is a unit of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Government of India.

The Centre has been imparting education and training, helping participants in developing research skills through its Master’s degree and Post Graduate courses. This is achieved through class-room (theory and hands-on exercises), group discussions, field campaigns and pilot projects in the field of space science and technology. These programs aim at capacity building for participating countries in designing and implementing space-based research and application programs.

The Eleventh P. G. Diploma Course in Space and Atmospheric Science (SAS-11) is one of the disciplines covered by the Post Graduate Programmes offered by CSSTEAP and conducted at Physical... read more

Space technologies, especially satellites are important instruments for development and progress of humankind. Satellites are used for Eartth observattiion, communication, navigation atmospheric studies, astronomical observations and military applications, sattelllliitte provides enormous services with less cost compared to conventional methods for similar applications.

The conference will build on opportunities through science and technology to address current issues and reduce risks for future generations. The conference would discuss the linkages among governance issues, decision making and disaster risk reduction policies for mainstreaming DRR into development policy and would identify effective ways of cooperation between the disaster, environment, water and health sectors, and explore examples of networks, cooperation, processes and partnerships. 

This conference is hoped to go beyond the awareness and the need to plan the individual components required to develop and implement an effective disaster management plan. The conference would be for three days from October 28 to October 30, 2015 and would be organized in parallel sessions. Ample time would be provided for discussions.

The themes of the conference include the following:

Natural and Technological Hazards: Forecasting & Early Warning Systems
