No systemic measures yet in disaster management 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Disaster management wears different attires in various disaster seasons. Let's start with a paradox: according to the latest Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) figures, more than 1,600 people have died in the recent past due to extreme weather events. However, we will never know the exact number of people who have died in heat waves, farmer suicides and cold waves. Of late, the National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA) has been burdened to deal with multiple natural and man-made disasters. Emerging research has shown that climate change is ushering in atmospheric and geological changes, which is throwing up newer future catastrophes. In 2016, the NDMA released the National Disaster Management Plan. This is a step forward in the right direction, but implementation of the plan document is still a far cry. Take the case of the recent Gopalganj flooding in Bihar. In the time it took the state government to declare it a disaster - as was the case - the Union government was unable able to waive of the ...

Quenching the thirst of wildlife 24.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements

The script is running as predicted by the Indian Meteorological Department, which said that India is expected to experience a hotter-than-normal summer this year. Water shortage in summer months is a perpetual problem in the desert state of Rajasthan. More so for its wildlife in its numerous famous sanctuaries. Most of the watering holes dry up in the extreme heat from May onwards. But this year, the intensity of heat has brought on the summer earlier. In 2012, a panther died of thirst in the Devdungari forest in Bhilwara district, one of the first such recorded occurrences. There could be more, but unreported. Environmentalists accuse the government of not making adequate arrangements for water, forcing wild animals to stray into human habitats to quench their thirst and hunger. The state wildlife department, however, claims otherwise. G V Reddy, state chief wildlife warden, ...
