The ideal grantee will be a U.S. university that currently offers a recognized disaster-management studies program. Preferably, the institution would have experience developing similar programs at other institutions. To facilitate this partnership, it is envisioned that in consultation with the U.S. Consulate General Mumbai the U.S. grantee would sign a memorandum of understanding with a recognized Indian university for a one-year period of consultation for program development. The U.S. entity would send one or two of its subject-matter experts for short-term consultation visits to the Indian partner university. During the course of the project, the grantee would work with the Indian partner on items to include, but not be limited to, curriculum development, sources of research data, procuring visiting lecturers and faculty, and collaborating with government and other stakeholders, and other ways to design and implement a course that best prepare India’s future disaster managers. The resulting programs(s) will be designed to attract as students representatives of government, business, and civil society who work in disaster management and mitigation as well as students studying this topic. The U.S. entity will also explore the possibility of a long-term academic collaboration with the host institution in order to ensure a continual exchange of information and expertise in this field in the coming years.
