Idea behind the creation of college clusters: JNU-DRP now Special Center for Disaster Research realized that DRR cannot be sustained without involving the youth from colleges and universities. The best age to influence and direct commitment towards DRR was the undergraduate level students.

The initiative was conducted in order to involve the youth in mitigating and managing disaster. The initiative is a collaboration of several colleges of the University of Delhi- Lady Shri Ram College (LSR), Miranda House, IGNOU, Kamala Nehru College, Aditi Mahavidyalaya.
