NDMA reviews National Disaster Management Plan  


NEW DELHI, THURSDAY: The two-day workshop on the review of the National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) ended today on a high note with fruitful discussions and inputs from all stakeholders. The workshop was organised by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi.

The NDMP, which was launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in June last year, itself provides for periodic reviews. To make this review process participatory and inclusive, NDMA had sought suggestions from State Governments and Ministries of the Central Government. 

Various Ministries made presentations suggesting ways to improve the Plan and discussed how to integrate Prime Minister’s 10-point agenda on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) into the national plan. 

Earlier in the day, Shri R. K. Jain, Member, NDMA, set the agenda by appraising the participants on the objectives of the workshop and summarising the discussions with State Government representatives on the previous day. 

Discussions at this workshop will also form a part of the deliberations at the upcoming National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (NPDRR), which will be held shortly.  

Senior officials of NDMA and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Members of NDMA's Advisory Committee, National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM), various Ministries of the Central Government and early warning agencies attended the concluding day of the workshop.
