Gujarat, India Field Trip - January 2016
This year students travelled to Gujarat, India to study the long term recovery challenges after earthquake of 2001.
The visit was organised in collaboration with All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI), Gujarat, India. The 2001 earthquake had devastating effects on the affected population. 15 years on MA DEP students travelled to affected areas of Kutch and Patan districts of Gujarat. They conducted interviews with affected persons, undertook transect walks, used sketches to delineate changes. The learnings are captured in this special issue of southasiadisasters.net published by AIDMI and includes articles by DEP students on various themes allied with post-earthquake recovery challenges.
