Odisha to Collaborate with RIMES for Disaster Management

The government of Odisha is all set up to join hands with the Thailand-based Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (RIMES). Odisha State Disaster Mitigation Authority (OSDMA) and RIMES would forge a partnership in the field of drought monitoring and early warning for different natural disasters.

Odisha to Collaborate with RIMES for Disaster Management

Objective


  • The decision is taken to fortify the early warning services of the state. Also, the state aims at preparing for management of hazards using the system. The collaboration of OSDMA and RIMES will help improve the disaster management capability of the State. 
  • Under the drought monitoring system, both institutions would work on a system to archive, analyse and visualise data, besides evaluating station performance and validating forecast data. 
  • RIMES is expected to provide a one-stop risk management system for all OSDMA needs. 
  • It would also enhance the warning-response capacities of the OSDMA by imparting specialised expert training. The RIMES will help to develop a one-stop risk management system for all OSDMA needs- integration of multiple data database/servers.
