1 Disaster Risk Management - Status Review & Proposed Plan
R. Krishnamoorthy UNIVERSITY OF MADRAS Chennai, India

2 Our Strengths Expertise in the School of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences [Depts. of Geology, Applied Geology & Geography] Scientific data on tsunami hazards and earthquake risk / prediction studies Center for Natural Hazards & Disaster Studies [CNHDS] funded by MHRD, GOI

3 Our Strengths (Contd.) International Collaborations
Tsunami modeling - Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, IRD, "Géosciences Azur", IRD-CNRS-UNSA-UPMC, France Coastal Zone Management - Kyoto University

4 Our Strengths (Contd.) Recent Initiatives – collaborative projects in process Community Based Coastal Zone Management: Towards Pro-active Risk Communication Strategy for Effective Tsunami Mitigation in the Coastal Areas of India under - India-Japan Cooperative Science Programme (IJCSP) jointly with Kyoto University Emergency Tsunami Reconstruction Project: Preparation of ICZM plan and coastal vulnerability map for Tamil Nadu – The World Bank Establishment of National Early Warning System for Tsunami & Storm Surges in Indian Ocean – The Ministry of Earth Sciences, GOI

7 Our Strengths (Contd.) Publications
Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) – The Global Challenge (February 2007) Research Publishing Services Disaster Management – The Global Challenges and Local Solutions (March 2008) Orient Longman India

8 Our Weakness Not much in capacity building activities
Guidance / Funding

9 MU – KU – METU (Proposed Plan) 2007-2009
Capacity Building Activities 1. Basic courses for graduate students 2. Short-term course for practitioners 3. Training for the trainers 4. International training workshops 5. Web-based courses Collaborative Research Project

10 MU – KU – METU (immediate tasks)
Finalization of MOU [January 2007] Preparation of proposals for short-term courses & training for trainers [March 2007] 2 ST courses for practitioners/Stakeholders [20 practitioners] 2 TFT [at MU or METU & KU] [ = 15 Trainers] [5 Trainers on visit] 2 Expert visits from KU, WBI & ISDR [5 Experts on visit] Funded by WBI and ISDR

11 MU – KU – METU (tasks) International training workshop [May 2008]
5 participants from METU region [WBI/ISDR funding] 15 participants from India [self supported] 15 participants from SA countries [facilitate funding from APN, IHDP, etc.] 5 participants from developed countries MU will host and provide University guesthouse, training hall, field visits & preparation training materials

12 MU – KU – METU (tasks) Joint collaborative research project 2007-09
Preparation of first draft – February 07 Final draft and submission – April 07 Opportunities Students / young scholars exchange visits Fellowship for young scholars leading to Ph.D. Funded by WBI & ISDR

13 MU – KU – METU (tasks) Post-graduate diploma course in the University curriculum [ ] – self supported Web-based courses [ ] – WBI/ISDR 2 end user workshops / brainstorming sessions [2009] – WBI/ISDR

14 University of Madras 2010 Adequate strength in capacity building
Generation of action oriented research outputs Extramural resource generation through funding projects
