CHD Group and SEEDS have been working in the  on disaster management for a long time and the coming together of the two organisations will build institutional capacities to address the problems of disasters and also converge efforts in the right directions. Both the organisations have been working with the  Governments and intend to take the co-operation further. Disaster management as a  discipline is multi-sectoral in nature and cannot be handled by one institution alone. Life and  livelihood can be protected only by convergence and joint co-operation by appropriate  stakeholders in the field.

SEEDS works as a non-profit organisation, to make vulnerable communities resilient to disasters. The  organisation carries out immediate relief work, rebuilds homes and restores disaster hit  schools having the head office in New Delhi. CHD Group is a public health organisation  engaged in capacity building, advocacy and evidence based public health centric policy with grass-root level institutions and with policy level mechanisms in the Government and the UN.
