Srinagar: Centre for Environment Education (CEE-Himalaya) in collaboration with Regional Centres of Expertise (RCE), here and with financial support of Welthungerhilfe South Asia office, New Delhi, is organizing a two-day workshop “From devastation to recovery in earthquake hit Kashmir: linking relief and rehabilitation to development” on November 16 and 17, at IMPA, here.
“The workshop would highlight the consequences of devastative earthquake that hit Kashmir in 2005; the restructuring and rehabilitation measures taken by CEE and the State Government; and the need to sustain enhanced capacities of individuals as well as government officials in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) efforts to reduce vulnerability. Other topics to be covered includes minimizing the probability of emergencies in future by creating more room for the better safety nets, improved infrastructure, and secure livelihoods of locals,” said the programme director, CEE Himalaya and CEE North East, Dr Abdhesh Gangwarin in a statement.
He said, the workshop was next step to earlier programme held on October 13-14, 2009 at Hotel Broadway, Srinagar by CEE and Welthungerhilfe (formerly German Agro Action) to discuss the state of recovery and rehabilitation in earthquake affected Jammu & Kashmir and the future strategies towards resilience. The workshop had focus on four thematic areas- education, health, livelihood restoration, and capacity building and the recommendations,” Dr Abdhesh Gangwarin added.
He said “Now that it has been six years of the devastating earthquake that changed the face of Kashmir, reconstruction is nearing to end with most of the infrastructure in place barring a few remote schools or other such structures. Rehabilitation process thus after six years is in to a transition stage that leads to development.”
