How better we are prepared for Disasters?

Background

Over the last 10 years, disasters have affected more than 1.5 billion people across the world. The total cost of these disasters is estimated to have exceeded $1.5 trillion. (UNISDR (United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction), Sendai framework for disaster risk reduction 2015–2030, 2015). A government study of 10 major disasters in the past decade in India has revealed that damages caused by such natural hazards have resulted in losses that account for as high as 66% of all public-sector losses. The need is for comprehensive understanding of these probable incidences and damages caused by them to communities, public sector enterprises and industries.

In this context, the iCONEX Exhibitions Pvt. Ltd. which is an international event organization, has been promoting Health, Environmental, Safety and Sustainability Initiatives globally, has taken a step ahead towards sustainable development. Understanding the need of global platform to discuss the preparedness of our PSU’S, industries and other stakeholders against the destruction caused by natural disasters, Global Inclusive Disaster Management Conference (GIDMC) has been planned on 10th and 11th July 2018 in Le Meridian Hotel New Delhi.
