Welcome to National Centre for Disaster Mitigation & Management
About the Department

The national centre for disaster mitigation and management at MNIT Jaipur was established in 2013, to create a centre for the national facility in theoretical and experimental research, and training in disaster mitigation. Natural and man-made hazards causing disasters include earthquakes, cyclones, tsunamis, blasts, and terrorist attacks. The centre began its activities by taking up earthquakes first, as the most potential cause of disaster inflicting enormous loss of life and money in the past decade. Other hazards causing disasters will be taken up in due course.
