Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday called for integrated preparations for dealing with natural disasters underlining they should not be isolated as natural calamities in one part of the world affect others too.

Speaking at the 5th edition of the International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure, he noted that in just a few years, over 40 countries from advanced and developing countries, large or small or from the Global South or Global North have become part of the CDRI.

He outlined some priorities for discussion for disaster resilience infrastructure in the context of this year’s theme of ‘Delivering Resilient and Inclusive Infrastructure’.

PM Modi underlined the intelligent use of local knowledge of building infrastructures that can withstand disasters. Modern technology with local insights can be great for resilience. Further, if documented well, local knowledge may become a global best practice, he said.
