Amrita’s disaster risk management approach is grounded in applied research and driven by a strong social conscience to address the complex challenges of pre-disaster, disaster, and post-disaster scenarios. With a focus on innovative thinking, integrated research, and meeting the needs of the future, researchers strive to develop real-world applicable solutions that benefit society.


Effective early warning can save lives and reduce damage by 30% if activated 24 hours before the event. 

Today, one-third of the world’s population, mainly in the least developed countries, is still not covered by early warning systems.

The estimated insured losses from disasters are a staggering US $120 billion — but they represent just the tip of the iceberg.

Making Early Warning a Reality Most Vulnerable

AI Integrated IOT System For The Detection & Early Warning Of Landslides


Amrita has successfully deployed the world’s first wireless sensor network system which was later upgraded to the AI integrated Internet of Things (IoT) system for detection and early warning of landslides in Munnar, Kerala, India. At the request of the Government of India, Amrita has also deployed a similar system in Sikkim, Northeast Himalayas. This applied research, with significant global value for all landslide-prone areas, was directly initiated by the University Chancellor, Mata Amritanandamayi Devi to develop low-cost technologies for wide-area monitoring of landslides, to save human life
