NDMA’s pilot project on “Capacity Building in Disaster Management for officials and representatives of Panchayati Raj Institutions and Urban Local Bodies at District Level” is being implemented through Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been signed between NDMA and IGNOU. Under this ambitious project, face to face training programme (FFTPs) in State Administrative Training Institute (ATIs) and 432 FFTPs in IGNOU study centres of 54 selected districts (8 in each district) will be organised. In each district, 300 people will be trained under the project of which 75 will be Govt. officials and 225 will be the representatives of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) and Urban Local Bodies (ULBs). Thus, in all, 16200 Government officials and representatives of PRIs/ULBs are aimed to be trained in Disaster Management under this project.
