Humanitarian operations and disaster management have been increasingly challenging in recent years because of increased severity and frequency of natural disasters. Four most devastating natural disasters (i.e., the Asian tsunami, the Haitian earthquake, the Japanese earthquake, the Uttarakhand landslide) in the last 100 years occurred during the last decade. Despite the best efforts by several governmental and voluntary institutions, these disasters have caused significant loss of life and material resources.
The Amrita Center for Humanitarian Operations & Management under the Amrita School of Business, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham aims to study the organizational, managerial and behavioral issues pertaining to preparedness, response, relief, recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction to better understand the operational intricacies and build humanitarian operations body of knowledge.
