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 ...

Infrastructure: the road ahead 27.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As homes become smart, there is an urgent need to innovate and create home grown technologies that will benefit the built economy of the country says Dr Mattheos Santamouris, a professor of High Performance Architecture in the University of New South Wales, Sydney. There are many challenges in the built environment today. It is said that the population of the world is around 6.5 billion currently, and will reach 10-11 billion by 2050, and most of this will be in Asia, especially India and China. This means that we will approximately need one billion new houses or 1.5 billion new buildings and this is a big challenge that high performance architecture is facing. The second challenge is climate change — both general and local, stemming from a high concentration of greenhouse gases and climatic changes in cities. In fact, in many cities, temperatures have gone up by 8 to 10 degrees, and this causes many problems like high energy consumption and pollution, increases footprint of cities and also impacts ...
