KU launches PG diploma in disaster management
Srinagar, Aug 10 : Kashmir University’s Department of Geography and Regional Development is launching a job oriented and multidisciplinary course titled ‘Post Graduate Diploma in Disaster Management’ (PGDDM) from the academic session September, 2012.
“The experiences of recent major disasters and the frequent occurrence of extreme events around the world in general and within this geographic zone in particular, have made it amply clear that a holistic approach to Disaster Management is much needed and awaited,” said a statement by PRO KU here.
“The University of Kashmir in order to play an effective role for putting in place an efficient Disaster Management mechanism in this ecologically fragile mountainous region has taken an academic initiative by introducing a Post Graduate Diploma program in Disaster Management at its Department of Geography and Regional Development,” said Prof Muhammad Sultan Bhat, head of the post- graduate department of geography and regional development.
In view of the employability of this program, it is pertinent to mention that Government of India on recommendation of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) intends to create District Disaster Management Authorities all over India.
The state of Jammu and Kashmir is expected to have 22 District Disaster Management Authorities in near future. Besides, almost all the other State Govt. Departments are supposed to create individual Disaster Management cells. The creation of District Disaster Management Authorities in all the districts and Disaster Management Cells in other departments would generate immense employment opportunities to the pass out students of this course.
