NDMA workshop will review disaster management scheme

In June last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the country’s first National Disaster Management Plan. The purpose of the plan is to enable India to withstand disaster and reduce the loss of life and property adequately. Along with that, India has joined the first countries that have linked the national plan to the ‘Sendai Framework’.

This national scheme was adopted in March 2015 in the third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Senei, Japan. Under the scheme, the template will be prepared for disaster management in the entire country. In its implementation Panchayat, urban local bodies and all government-NGOs, civil society and weaker communities will be included.

Discussion of the workshop will be considered in the National Forum (NPDRR) for the upcoming disaster risk reduction, which will be organized soon. The meeting will be attended by NDMA members and officials, National Disaster Response Force, National Disaster Management Institute, State Governments, Indian Meteorological Department and Central Water Commission, as well as early warning agencies. Apart from this, the Central Government Ministries / Departments, concerned NGOs, former members of NDMA, members of the Advisory Committee and educational institutions will also participate in the program.
