ICT for Disaster Management in India

Building Resilience Against Climate-Induced Flooding in India: Harnassing ICT for Disaster Relief – master research project Adithya Vasisth January – August 2024 supervised by Anna Bon and Kees Boersma (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).

This master project delves into the crucial role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in bolstering flood relief efforts in India. It goes beyond early warning systems and examines how these tools enhance disaster response, streamline communication, and optimize resource management in the face of flooding events worsened by climate change. The research explores innovative applications of ICT that improve disaster management practices, offering valuable insights for policymakers and disaster management professionals. By showcasing the potential of ICT to effectively mitigate the impact of floods, this study supports the development of comprehensive, technology-driven strategies for disaster relief and resilience in affected regions.
