New Delhi. PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the third session of the National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (NPDRR) on Friday . This session by the NDRF team has been organized on the theme 'Creating local change in a changing climate'. During the inauguration of the session, PM Modi addressed the NDRF jawans present. During this, PM Modi said, the whole world has appreciated the efforts of the Indian team in the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

During this, PM Modi also said that there is a need to enrich local construction material and construction technology with today's technology.

This year Odisha State Disaster Management Authority (OSDMA) and Lunglei Fire Station Mizoram have been the winners of this award.

PM Modi has praised both these institutions. PM Modi said, the Odisha State Disaster Management Authority has been doing excellent work during various disasters from cyclone to tsunami.

In this country, the system related to disaster management has always been local, the solutions have been local, the strategy has also been local.

PM Modi remembered Kutch earthquake

PM Modi recalled the earthquake in Kutch, Gujarat while discussing local measures to deal with natural calamities. During this, he said, 'The houses in which the people of Kutch live are called Bhunga, they are mudhouses.
