CALL FOR PROPOSALS 2023-24
In Indian sub-continent, nearly a billion people suffer yearly from natural and man-made
disasters. Rapid population growth, unprecedented development, extreme climatic events
along with complex geo-environmental setting contribute to the increasing effect of disasters.
The frequency and impact of natural disasters are increasing day by day. Therefore, there is
an urgent need to use both technology and suitable administrative measures along with societal
response to mitigate or reduce the impact of disasters.
ISRO’s Disaster Management Support Programme (DMSP) has been actively supporting the
Central and State governments by providing operational services during pre-disaster, disaster
and post-disaster time-frames, including experimental forecasts, using space systems.
Capacity Building in space technology for disaster management has been identified as a key
element of sustainable and effective disaster management. However, it is a challenging task
considering the diverse background of stakeholders and different types of disasters to deal
with. Further, it becomes challenging as the issue of disaster management is interwoven with
activities related to development, socio-economic conditions, adaptation to climate change
Considering above, ISRO has initiated a very exciting capacity building (CB) program which is
funded under ISRO DMS program since 2021. This program invites proposals on Capacity
Building programmes in different areas of Space Based Disaster Management Support from
scientists, engineers and faculty members from Centres & Units of ISRO/ Department of Space
(DOS), and R&D institutions and recognized Academic Institutes in India for financial support
by ISRO under the DMSP. This Announcement of Opportunity (AO) invites proposal for 2023- 24.
Last date for submission: 20-12-2023 [17:00 Hrs]
