Vision of this policy is to build a safe and disaster resilient India by developing a holistic, proactive, multi-disaster oriented and technology driven strategy through a culture of prevention, mitigation, preparedness and response. As Climate change is impacting glacial reserves, water balance, agriculture, forestry, coastal ecology, bio-diversity and human and animal health, so there are definite indications that climate change would increase the frequency and intensity of natural disasters like cyclones, floods and droughts in the coming years. In order to meet these challenges in a sustained and effective manner, synergies in our approach and strategies for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction shall be encouraged and promoted.
