Expected results/impacts
  • The following would be the success indicators of the programme:
  • Better understanding of Emergency Planning
  • Integration of HIRA, Environmental Planning with Industrial Disaster Management
  • Understand the types of information & results depicted under HIRA
  • Identifying safer & hot zones for sitting of industries through GIS and other mapping techniques

Description of contents/agenda

Knowledge and awareness on the subject is a major requirement for foolproof Chemical/ Industrial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management. In India only limited numbers of experts are available, especially in sophisticated quantitative risk assessment techniques, hazard identification and for preparation of a user friendly and practicable On-site & Off-site Emergency Management plans to meet out the challenges of emergency preparedness, planning and response.
The program envisage the following gaps in present knowledge of the target groups and objective of this program to reduce these gaps:

  • Concepts of Environmental Planning and Disaster Risk Reduction
  • Application of Spatial Environmental Planning (SEP) in On-site and Off-site Emergency Management Planning
  • Capabilities for assessment of Hazard Identification and Quantitative Risk for different types of Chemical Process Industries by regulators
  • Integration of environmental planning with disaster management in sitting of Industrial estates and industries
  • Assessment of environmental damage by disasters & decontamination processes
