 Go back

The city of Jamnagar located on coast is experiencing widespread development. A study was initiated to assess the risk the city faces due to hydro meteorological hazards like Cyclone, Flood and Tsunami. The scope of the project included development of hazard risk models and vulnerability, hazard risk zoning of the city and neighborhood, suggesting mitigation measures to aid risk resistant infrastructure building and vulnerability reduction and training of personnel working in the field of disaster management for real time operation.

The study has been completed and findings of the report have highlighted important steps which need to be taken for developmental activities in the future. The final report has been circulated to all the relevant departments and is expected to form bases for future planning.
