Jaipur, Aug 21: A two-day meeting of the ministers of Disaster Management from BRICS countries will be held in Rajasthan's Udaipur from tomorrow to focus on two themes of 'Flood Risk Management' and 'Forecasting of Extreme Weather Events in the context of Changing Climate'.

Three technical sessions on areas of disaster risk management challenges, forecasting and early warning on flood and disaster risk in a changing climate will be held during the meet.


"The objectives of this meeting are to share experiences on flood risk management, current systems in each country for forecasting extreme weather events and to identify opportunities for collaboration between institutions of respective BRICS countries in the area of flood risk management and extreme weather-related events," according to a release.

This is the second meeting and in the follow up of the first meeting of the BRICS Ministers for Disaster Management convened by the Russian Federation in St. Petersburg in April this year.

"Recognising the common challenge posed by natural and man-made disasters, the BRICS countries have identified Disaster Management as an important area of collaboration. "The Ufa Declaration signed by BRICS Nations in July last year identified the need to promote cooperation in preventing and developing responses to emergency situations," the release said.
