The Government of India has envisaged a policy to build a safer and disaster resilient India by developing a holistic, integrated proactive multi disaster and technology driven strategy for disaster management through collective efforts of all government agencies and non-government organisations. Accordingly, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has translated this approach into National Database for Emergency Management (NDEM) for taking up ameliorative measures for providing timely information and decision making in the event of disasters. National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is the lead agency to implement and operationalize NDEM project. NDEM essentially serves as the national repository of GIS based data for entire country coupled with the set of Decision Support System tools to assist the disaster managers in decision making during emergency situations.
