Building resilience: Safeguarding Odisha from natural calamities


Author(s): Arta Barik and Dr. Keshab Chandra Ratha

Abstract:
Due to its geographical location and socioeconomic circumstances, Odisha, an eastern state in India, is susceptible to several natural disasters, including earthquakes, floods, and cyclones. The present study examines strategies to protect Odisha from such calamities, considering the state's susceptibility and the imperative nature of preventive measures. Initially, it assesses the susceptibility of Odisha to natural calamities by analysing the area's physical attributes, notable past events, and socioeconomic factors that amplify the risk. The significance of community engagement in disaster preparedness and resilience building is underscored in conjunction with government initiatives and policies, such as early warning systems and evacuation procedures. The study also examines the significance of technological breakthroughs and strong infrastructure, showcasing innovative solutions implemented in Odisha. Moreover, it underscores the importance of safeguarding the environment and effectively managing natural resources to decrease the probability of calamities, with a specific emphasis on preserving natural buffers. Disaster preparedness necessitates education and awareness, with a focus on the media and educational institutions' responsibilities in disseminating information. The present intellectual endeavour advocates for a comprehensive approach to disaster management in Odisha, encompassing infrastructure development, community engagement, government policies, environmental preservation, and educational initiatives, with the aim of mitigating natural disasters.
