In recent decades, many parts of the Indian region experienced disasters such as floods, droughts, landslides etc. These events cause severe damage to human life and property. These events can’t be prevented, but mitigation and adaptation actions can minimize the loss due to these disasters. Near real time monitoring will be helpful for such mitigation and adaptation actions. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from various centers to share and exchange their research focusing on monitoring anthropogenic disasters. It will be very helpful for enriching our understanding on this topic and will be crucial for mitigation and adaptation strategies against such disasters.
