“India: Partnerships for a better world”

In the first week of September, the Embassy of India, Brussels Exhibition and European Member of Parliament, Ms. Neena Gill hosted an exhibition at the European Parliament on India's contribution towards Disaster Risk Reduction Disaster.

The exhibition highlighted the progress India has in the area of DRR domestically, in the region and beyond towards reducing the loss of lives and livelihoods. It also covered the key challenges that need to be addressed such as how do we build on the progress that has been made in the last few years in reducing heat-related mortality. Heat Waves adversely affect populations in the summer months in both India and the EU countries, and thus, this is one area where India and EU countries can learn from each other.

A key highlight of the exhibition was the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) - the initiative, emerging partnerships, thematic areas - that will bring together both developed and developing countries around the theme of resilience of infrastructure.
