Introduction
Indian subcontinent is among the worlds most disasterproneareasandispronetoanumberof naturalhazards. One million houses are damaged annually in natural disasters, in addition to loss of human lives,socialandotherlosses.

Indiareceivesanannualaveragerainfallof975mm, 75% of the same in 4 month period from June to September Hillyareasareatriskfromlandslides&avalanches About 60% landmass is prone to earthquakes of moderatetohighintensity Over 40 m ha (12% land mass) area is prone to floods&rivererosion 5700 km out of 7500 km coast line is prone to cyclones&tsunamis

EconomicImpact
Primary: direct, measurable losses such as economicandsocialinfrastructure. Secondary: indirect losses incurred such as lower output from damaged assets; loss of livelihoodoptions. Tertiary: flow losses/negative impacts due to shifts in the macroeconomy to respond to the disaster.

Concern
Except few institutions in the country, disasters managementisnotthepartofformaleducation.
