Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Dhyan
Project Dhyan is a community outreach program initiated by the Department of Geography, Indraprastha college for women, University of Delhi. In the prior stage the project aimed to take up the vulnerabilities associated with heat wave hazard across different socio-economic spatial pockets of Delhi for developing a preparedness and management plan. The city of Delhi has witnessed extreme temperatures in the recent decade. The socio-economic inequalities and remarkable spatial manifestations are likely to face disproportionate socio spatial distribution of the impact of the heat waves. This may result in certain groups like women, low-income groups to be more vulnerable. Thereby, the plan developed will affect the community positively. Also an online platform named Her Stories was initiated wherein women who suffered from climate related disasters were interviewed. This section would be progressed later in the project.
