Teaching communities to understand technologies in India


In Tamilnadu and Kerala (India) many of the leading international agencies, including UN bodies, were keen on teaching the community or specific targeted groups to understand and practice various technologies related to the disaster preparedness programme. In Kerala where health systems are comparatively well established compared to other Indian States, it would be possible to integrate disaster management programmes through Primary Health Centres and Community Health Centres. The changes should come within the self, groups, and in the community itself.
