A Review of Indian Participation in International Disaster Response

Author’s abstract

This paper examines the Indian interaction with the international disaster response system in three parts, i.e. India as a provider of international disaster assistance, India as a recipient of international disaster assistance and, finally, the Indian military in international disaster response. The paper is confined to dealing with issues related to international sudden onset disaster events such as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis or cyclones and not to those arising from conflict situations.
