Seminar on Role of Media in Disaster Management

December 24th 2004 Tsunami struck the Indian Ocean and it was one of worst natural calamities in the recent times.  The entire globe was shocked when millions of innocent people became the victims of the calamity.  Relief measures from across globe flooded to the disaster sites.  To understand the disaster management measures taken by the governing bodies, Sarathi took the initiative in organizing a one day seminar on disaster management.  The different stakeholders like the NGOs, media; and bureaucrats who were actively involved in the various relief measures were invited to share their experiences.  Seminar was organized with the support of CMR Management School.
