ABOUT NCPDP

 

National Centre For People's Action In Disaster Preparedness was created with a focus on disaster preparedness in October, 2000 at the time of Bhavnagar Earthquake in Gujarat state. This was an outcome of seven years of intervention by its two honorary directors in earthquake-ravaged regions of Latur, Jabalpur and Chomoli in India.

 

Year after year such disasters bring death, destruction and hardship. Often people demolish their partly damaged houses out of fear. All this results in huge monetory losses adversely affecting the development pace. This happens because people are ill prepared and ignorant to face disasters. Intervention by external agencies is needed to build people’s capacity in ensuring their safety against disasters.

The Peoples' own involvement, however, is equally essential. NCPDP strives to bring viable, eco-friendly and sustainable technologies to help people reduce their vulnerability against future disasters.

NCPDP is one of a few technology-based organizations in the country with first-hand experience of working at the grass-roots with a firm belief that building capacity of people from within is the only way to mitigate disasters for a safer world.

   
  Over the past four years it has successfully executed several project. See "Important Completed Projects & Interventions"
