Cyclone Resistant Architecture
The Virtual Classroom Training Module on Cyclone Resistant Architecture has been developed for trainers to educate the relevant participants about the architectural techniques & methodologies to stand against the wrath caused by cyclonic hazards. The module has been designed in an interesting way to avoid the use of complex scientific/ technical nomenclature. The module is divided into two sessions. First session will explain about the cyclonic activities prevalent in Arabian Sea. Any such activity is a potential threat to coastal regions of Gujarat state. The session also intends to explain hazards associated with cyclones. Knowledge of cyclonic hazards is necessary to plan appropriate architectural mitigation strategies to curb their ill effects. The second session deals with all relevant aspects of cyclone resistant architecture. This session will list out the different genre of damages caused by cyclones and relevant architectural consideration to check them.
Role of Youth and Volunteers in DRM
This training module has been developed to inspire the youth, young professionals and volunteers to look beyond their monotonous scope and bring forth disruptions and innovations in the field of disaster risk reduction and risk management. We do not require solutions which are expensive, but we require solutions which are lean, agile and cost-effective. Given the tremendous potential of the youth, young professionals, this module intends to motivate them to work towards resilience in their own unique way. Apart from having the conventional sections of training, this module derives heavily from global experiences, documented in Words in Action.
