ICPECDM ’14 – International Conference on Professional Engineers:  Challenges in Disaster Management

Sponsored by TEQIP-II SC 1.2

18th-19th December 2014

ICPECDM -14India is one of the most disaster prone countries of the world. It has faced some of the world’s most severe floods, cyclones, fire accidents and earthquakes. Poor land use planning and inconsistent emergency management systems lead to vulnerability to floods, cyclones, earthquake and landslides.

About the Conference:

Disasters result in crippling economic losses and human tragedy, hampering development wherever and whenever they occur. Due to recent rapid urbanization in developing countries, many people reside in buildings and areas that are vulnerable to disasters. Disasters that strike in developing countries can severely impair efforts to alleviate poverty.

In order to reduce the effects of disasters, and human losses in particular, proactive disaster management should be adopted. Many engineering challenges are involved in meeting this need. In recent times, there has been a paradigm shift and India is becoming more proactive with emphasis on disaster preparedness.

In order to enhance the capacity of professionals to cope with engineering challenges in Disaster Management, the Department of Civil Engineering is organizing International Conference on Engineering Challenges in Disaster Management (ICPECDM ‘14). The main objective of this two day International Conference is to share knowledge and experience from various parts of the world with respect to the best practices and latest techniques in Engineering the before and after effects of Disaster. This Conference provides a single platform for academicians, researchers, professionals and policy makers to meet, discuss and share their experiences under one roof about the Management of Disaster and thereby address the challenges posed today and tomorrow.
