About C3ND

Centre for Climate Change & Natural Disaster is an important unit of SAIARD which has developed particularly to address on various issues related to hazards/disasters. Due to the recent changes of human-nature relationships we faced various natural and man-made hazards particularly in eastern and north-eastern parts of India. Therefore, considering the lacking of proper research and planning based institute in disaster sector, SAIARD has developed this centre and we believe in future it will play an important role to sort out the problems and providing solutions of various upcoming hazard related issues. With this perspective C3ND will join its hand with several Govt. & Non-Govt. organisations like IMD, NIDM, NESAC, NDMA etc. who are  working on that particular field, as a supporting hands, to make our future urban unit much more better and sustainable.
