DRVC 2011- International Conference

The Disaster, Risk and Vulnerability Conference 2011 (DRVC2011) was the first international conference of the series. It started out of the desire to bring together Disaster Professionals and students from varied backgrounds and out of the idea that such a gathering of minds from disparate disciplines, but with the common chord of ‘disaster’ interlinking their interests would throw up interesting insights into the then nascent field of study. It is a well-recognized fact that interdisciplinary research is the need of the hour, and DRVC2011 tried to tap into this potential.  Conferences act as foci for exchanging ideas and for establishing new collaborations. Vibrant discussions make conferences alive. The compendium of papers from the DRVC2011 reveals the range of the field, with papers ranging from Artificial Intelligence and Cumulus modelling to Psychology, Social mapping, Retrofitting and Structural Mapping.

DRVC 2014- National Conference

The Disaster, Risk and Vulnerability Conference (DRVC) 2014 (National conference) was an outcome of the interest that was generated and the requests for a repeat of the DRVC2011. Theepartment of Geology, University of Kerala, Trivandrum, India. The world had witnessed a series of disasters over the intervening period and the Uttarakhand flood was the most devastating and immediate amongst those. Each disaster brings upon us the onerous task of conducting a postmortem, and inevitably the harsh reality of lessons not learned becomes evident. It is in this context that conferences like the DRVC gain importance as avenues where practitioners from diverse areas that touch upon disasters could come together and listen to each other, share ideas and experiences and discuss possible success stories that could be replicated elsewhere. The papers that populate this volume range from those utilizing technology to tackle disasters or mitigate their effects to those that look at post-disaster interventions, community-based adaptation strategies to GIS based disaster management strategies.
