The National Information Centre of Earthquake Engineering (NICEE) was established in IIT  Kanpur with the mandate to empower all stakeholders in the building industry in seismic safety towards ensuring an  earthquake resistant built environment. 

NICEE maintains and disseminates  information resources on Earthquake  Engineering.  It undertakes community  outreach activities aimed at mitigation of  earthquake disasters.  NICEE's target audience includes professionals, academics  and all others with an interest in and concern  for seismic safety. 

India has a very real earthquake problem. The past two decades  have seen devastating earthquakes striking India with  frightening regularity. India's seismic zone map emphasizes  that over 60% of land area in India is under moderate to severe  earthquake hazard.
Unsafe building stock makes the built environment vulnerable  and this in turn results in loss of human life and property in the  aftermath of earthquakes. 
Hence, the built environment must be made earthquake  resistant so that lives are not lost through the collapse of unsafe  buildings. This requires the active participation of various  professionals associated with the construction industry and the  all stakeholders in building development and delivery.
