NIDM organized a one day National workshop on PDNA

On 23 September 2019, the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) organized a one day National workshop on Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA).
Under the National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project (NCRMP), NIDM undertook the study for developing a scientific tool on Post Disaster Needs Assessment.

  • The PDNA workshop aims to disseminate the outcome documents of the study to all the relevant stakeholders. By doing so, the same outcome documents can be utilized as a reference document while preparing the memorandum for submission to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in the post-disaster phase. 
  • The workshop also discussed various issues and challenges that are faced by States in assessment of damage and loss along with the capacity gap for undertaking such detailed exercise.

All the nodal officers for Disaster Management from the relevant Central Ministries/Department and Principal Secretaries of Disaster Management and Resident Commissioner of all the States and UTs participated in the workshop. Officers from the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Disaster Management Authority also participated. Apart from them, Representatives from UNDP, World Bank, ADB, WHO, FAO, WFP, NGOs and multilateral organizations participated in the workshop.
