dc.description.abstract The article discusses how the contribution of science in managing disaster risks in an emerging economy like India can be enhanced and enriched. It highlights some of the underlying challenges in greater science–policy interface in disaster risk management (DRM) and suggests some principles to organize and strengthen such interface at various levels of planning and implementation. The paper acknowledges that due to geography, India is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world, and under changing climatic conditions, extreme weather phenomenon has become a norm rather than an exception. en
