Web-DCRA

Web-Dynamic Composite Risk Atlas (Web-DCRA)

The Indian coast is highly vulnerable to natural hazards, particularly to severe cyclones and cyclone induced heavy rainfall and flooding. The National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project (NCRMP) is a pioneer project of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Government of India (GOI) and is being implemented through NDMA with the financial support of the World Bank. The aim of NCRMP is to create suitable physical infrastructure to mitigate/reduce the adverse effects of cyclones.
The project has been divided into two phases. The first phase focused on developing a Web-based Composite Risk Atlas (Web-CRA) that is capable of identifying hotspots of high vulnerability coastal areas for communities at-risk. Accordingly, Hazard, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment (HVRA) study was conducted as one of the activity of NCRMP–I, and a Web-CRA was developed. This study was successfully completed by RMSI in 2016. This web-based risk assessment system provides the concerned stakeholders with a risk assessment framework that offers cross-cutting decision support for mitigation planning at all levels of Government – Central, State, District, Taluka/Tehsil/Mandal (Taluka), City/Town and Village.
It was realized that in addition to the above, mitigation planning (static pre-event planning) and dynamic response (responding to a real-time cyclone) for cyclone prone States/UTs was needed. Thus, this second phase was conceptualized with very specific objectives including:
* Development of Probabilistic Risk Assessment Maps / Products (stochastic scenario based approach to Probabilistic Risk Modeling) for depiction of cyclone risk and storm surge flooding / coastal flooding vulnerability maps for the coastline of India (not a real-time product).
* Development of Dynamic Web-Composite Risk Atlas (WEB-DCRA) for real-time analysis of impending cyclonic events (real-time product, Decision Support Tool).
