Introduction and Rationale


Disaster management is emerging globally as a field of study that deals with an increasing range of risks and vulnerabilities that societies, nations, and communities have to understand and learn to cope with. The expansion of the scope of the term disaster beyond its original definition, referring solely to natural hazards, has made disaster studies an important aspect of the way we study the impact of shocks, of varied origin and types, on society and peoples. Even if the subject began originally mostly in the practitioner’s domain, it is now increasingly a field of study that combines theoretical perspectives and understanding with a range of skills and techniques that have become increasingly sophisticated.

For developing societies, disaster risk reduction is increasingly understood as an integral part of development, especially in the era of climate change, and the vulnerabilities of the poor and marginalized have come to be recognized as the key to understanding the disproportionate impact of disasters in the developing world. Especially in the developing world, disaster risk reduction, disaster response and post-disaster recovery need to be examined and evaluated from the perspectives of justice, equity and social inclusion. In India, disaster management as a field of systematic study and practice is still in its initial stages, providing tremendous scope for exploration, research and the evolution of appropriate techniques and best practices.

The Certificate Programme in Disaster Management, offered by the Jamsetji Tata School of Disaster Studies, aims at providing a basic understanding of the various components of disaster management.
