Govt develops new tool to measure loss due to disasters


The government has developed a scientific tool based on a UN model which will use satellite imagery and on-ground assessments to measure direct and indirect damages besides the 'opportunity cost' lost due to disasters. 
•    This will help the Centre make a more accurate and scientific assessment of relief and reconstruction packages for disaster-hit regions, and not be dependent on the arbitrary claims made by states.
•    The scientific tool, called the Post-Disaster Need Assessment (PDNA), has been developed by the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM), a part of the home ministry. 
•    It is ready for trials and a pilot will run in a calamity-hit region. The tool has been designed to meet Indian conditions, though modelled on the lines of a similar tool used by the UNISDR for Latin American countries. 
•    The UNISDR tool was developed by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean and is known as ECLAC tool for disaster risk reduction and loss assessments.

ABOUT US

The idea of SSCtube started when some of the CGL 2013 officers discussed their experiences as how difficult it was for them to get reliable and authentic information about various SSC exams, related matters and the offered job profiles. If a fresh aspirant wants to crack this exam in the very first attempt, he/she definitely needs some solid guidance, an effective strategy and a work plan.
