Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Dhyan
The proposed project would be an attempt to map the spaces of vulnerability in Delhi in the context of emerging threats from the urban climate disasters. This project will be an attempt to develop a spatially sound community-oriented disaster preparedness model. Awareness programmes would be initiated to spread awareness among the local communities. The project will also try to make possible tie-up with the National Disaster Management Authority of India. The project intends to impact 2,500 lives in the initial stage.
