Employment Guarantee and Crisis Response

This article looks at the National Employment Guarantee Act and related programmes from the perspective of responding to sudden (and rapid) onset of events like economic crises and natural and man-made disasters. It advocates using the NREGA as part of the rapid response to crises and disasters. Particular attention is focused on the aggregate impact of localised disasters/crises, which may be large and need to be addressed in disaster management strategies in India.
