Underlining the need for innovative strategies to mitigate the risk of crowd related disasters, R. K. Jain, Member, NDMA, said that the conference has brought to focus “varied issues relevant to efficient crowd management.”

Three technical sessions – Planning & Coordination, Safety Standards – Fire Works and Use of Animals in Festivals, and Cross-Cutting Issues – were held today. Detailed discussions were held on issues pertaining to planning and interagency coordination, including the role of Police, National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), Civil Defence and Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
