Education for Disaster Management

 

            On the recommendation of 2nd Administrative Reforms Commission contained in its 3rd Report titled “Crisis Management from Despair to Hope” regarding introduction of “Disaster Management” as a subject in ‘Management and Public Administration’, the University Grants Commission(UGC) constituted an Expert Committee consisting of subject experts in Disaster Management. The Expert Committee framed the syllabus for an optional paper on Disaster Management at the Undergraduate level and syllabus for a short-term training course for UG teachers to be used by Academic Staff Colleges. The Commission considered the report of the Expert Committee on Disaster Management and approved the introduction of an optional paper on Disaster Management at the Undergraduate level across the universities/colleges. The Commission further decided that Disaster Management be introduced as one of the topics in Orientation and Refresher Courses offered by the Academic Staff Colleges. The Indira Gandhi National Open University(IGNOU) is also running various courses in Disaster Management at Post Graduate and Doctoral level programmes.

 

            Similarly, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has also introduced the topic of Disaster Management as a part of the school curriculum in Social Science.

 

            The UGC has provided financial assistance of Rs.467.04 lakh to the Pondicherry University for starting M.Sc. course in Coastal Disaster Management at its Jawaharlal Nehru Rajkeeya Mahavidyalaya (JNRM) Campus, Port Blair. Further, the UGC is also implementing a scheme of providing assistance to universities and colleges for overcoming damages caused by natural calamities/disastrous as a part of the general development assistance. The quantum of assistance under the scheme depends on the nature of calamities and availability of funds. The damages/losses are ascertained based on the recommendations of the District Magistrate/Commissioner of the affected district. The financial assistance is on sharing basis in the ratio of 75% by UGC and 25% by the concerned State Government. During the XI Plan period, UGC released an amount of Rs.500 lakh to Pondicherry University for the damage caused by the recent Thane Cyclone which hit Pondicherry on 30.12.2011. UGC has also provided grants to the following colleges under the scheme:
