In their efforts to impart Climate change and disaster management education, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions (MREI) in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Administration of Relief (CSAR) organized a thought-provoking National Seminar on Climate Change and Disaster Management at the MREI campus here today. The programme began on a patriotic note with the ‘Vande Mataram’ song being rendered in a mellifluous voice by MREI students.

The Seminar was attended by a host of eminent dignitaries such as Dr. Harjit S. Anand,  Chairman, CSAR and former Secretary, Govt. of India; Justice (Dr.) Arijit Pasayat, Judge of the Supreme Court of India; Dr . .C. Wadhwa, Vice Chancellor, Manav Rachna International University; Dr Sanjay Srivastava, MD, MREI and VC, MRU; Dr Kamal Kishore, Member, National Disaster Management Authority; Prof. V. Subramaniam, UGC Emeritus Professor; Prof. Ajit Tyagi (Air Vice Marshall retd.), President of the Indian Meteorological Society; Prof. Chandan Ghosh, National Institute of Disaster Management; Dr D.

It was felt that innovative approaches to disaster mitigation and mock preparedness and management of disasters were essential to maximize the effectiveness of our Rescue, Relief, and Rehabilitation operations. The Seminar highlighted the fact that industrialization, depletion of traditional sources of energy and disruption of ecological resources have contributed to environmental deterioration. Hence, taking recourse to sustainable development and alternate energy resources is the need of the hour. It was agreed at the seminar that there is no field, which is untouched by climate change, and enhancing knowledge in the said field is crucial to our survival.
