Brief Introduction

प्राकृतिक आपदाएं विकसित एवं विकासशील देशों में समान रूप से भारी तबाही करती हैं तथा समाज व अर्थव्यवस्था पर नकारात्मक प्रभाव डालती हैं। देश के हिमालय क्षेत्र, सामान्यतः हिमस्खलन, भूस्खलन, ग्लोफ (ग्लेशियर झील के फटने से उत्पन्न बाढ़), ललोफ (भूस्खलन जनित् झील फटने से उत्पन्न बाढ़॥ और बादल फटना आदि जैसी आपदाओं का सामना करते हैं। पर्वतीय प्रदेशों के विकास व बढ़ती हुई मूलभूत सुविधाएं जैसे कि हाइवे, सुरंगे, पावर वितरण लाइनें, पर्यटन आदि उद्देश्यों को पूरा करने के लिए इन आपदाओं का हल निकालना एक चुनौतिपूर्ण कार्य है। नई प्रौद्योगीकी की उपलब्धता से भू-आपदाओं (हिमस्खलन व भूस्खलन) का स्थानीय वितरण समझने व निवारण प्रदान करने में मदद मिली है। इसने आपदा प्रबंधन संबन्धित योजना बनाने व उचित कार्यान्वयन में सहयोग दिया है। रक्षा भू-सूचना विज्ञान अनुसंधान प्रतिष्ठान (डी.जी .आर.ई), हिमालय क्षेत्र में हिमस्खलन एवं भूस्खलन आपदा निवारण के लिए नई प्रौद्योगिकी का विकास तथा अभियांत्रिक हल प्रदान करने मे अग्रिम स्थान रखता है।

Natural disasters strike countries, both developed and developing alike, causing enormous destruction and human suffering, thereby have an adverse impact on society and economies. Avalanches, landslides, Glacier Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF), Landslide Lake Outburst Flood (LLOF) and cloud burst, etc., are the major threats faced by the countries in the Himalaya. It has become a challenging task for the Government and society to find solution of these hazards for hilly states development, growing mountain infrastructures such as highways, tunnels, power transmission lines, tourism, etc. Recent advancements in the existing technologies have helped to understand the spatial distribution of geo-hazard and further improvements in avalanche and landslide mitigation measures/ schemes. It has enabled hazard management authorities in planning and implementation of hazard reduction programmes. Defence Geoinformatics Research Establishment (DGRE) is in the forefront for development of new technologies and providing engineering solutions for the mitigation of the avalanche and landslide risk in the Himalayan regions.

यह प्रशिक्षण इस क्षेत्र में कार्य करने वाले राष्ट्रीय व अंतराष्ट्रीय विशेषज्ञों, वैज्ञानिकों, शौधकर्ताओं को इन आपदाओं से संबन्धित विषयों की जानकारी आदान- प्रदान करने तथा हल हेतू नवीनतम तकनीकों का ज्ञान सामान्य प्लेटफॉर्म पर रखने का अवसर प्रदान करेगा। इस प्रशिक्षण पाठ्यक्रम में राष्ट्रीय तथा अंतराष्ट्रीय विशेषज्ञों की उपस्थिति से प्रतिभागियों के विश्लेषणात्मक तथा निरीक्षणात्मक कौशल का विकास होगा।

This training will provide a common platform for national and international experts/scientific community /researchers working on subject to disseminate and exchange the expert knowledge and renewed actions to address the problems of snow avalanches, landslides, GLOF, LLOF etc. With availability of international experts/speakers, the course modules will improve the analytical capabilities and observational skills of the participants.
