Disaster Management for Civil Services Examinations I UPSC Civil Services I IAS preparation

Published on 2024
Original price was: ₹145.00.Current price is: ₹102.00.

About the book:

The public policy approach to disaster management studies the responses that the state evolves when managing disasters. These state responses are important because they have implications on the development strategy that the state would adopt after the disasters have occurred and also how communities would mould their responses in future such occurrences. The book analyses the comprehensive and dedicated public policy-based disaster responses in India and how these strategies have enabled communities and governments to evolve resilient disaster management practices. The public policy perspective traces its origin from geography, uses geographical inputs, and then analyses the geospatial profile of India to examine the vulnerabilities. The book then places the distinct public policy responses to each disaster and articulates the governmental perspective on disaster management through a thorough and deep contextual analysis of the policy frameworks involved. The number of questions on Disaster Management are increasing every year in the UPSC Civil Services Main Examination even when the subject continues to receive step brotherly treatment. The problem is compounded when the subject is seen as a veritable arm of 'Geography', even when the UPSC has placed the subject under GS Mains Paper -lll. This book provides a through treatment to the subject by re-visiting the intellectual discourse through the prism of public policy and provides the readers with theoretical underlings, ideas and interdisciplinary perspectives to tackle the UPSC Main Exam questions.

  • Public Policy approach
  • Interdisciplinary perspective
  • Relevance to contemporary issues
 

Book Features:

  • Disaster Management is an interdisciplinary field drawing on inputs from various disciplines, including pure sciences and management.
  • Despite its broad scope, there's a tendency in UPSC coaching classes and publications to associate disaster management primarily with Geography and Environment.
  • However, it's essential to recognize disaster management's deeper connection with management principles and public policy.
  • The public policy approach to disaster management examines the responses formulated by the state in managing disasters, which shape future development strategies and community responses.
  • Overall, the book offers a comprehensive exploration of disaster management from a public policy perspective, illuminating the strategies and frameworks shaping responses to disasters in India.
