Towards a safer Sri Lanka: road map for disaster risk management

The 'Road map' is a comprehensive programme of action for disaster risk management which has been developed by the Government of Sri Lanka with support from UNDP.

This is a guiding document to achieve the vision of disaster management in Sri Lanka. It includes necessary programmes, projects activities with details of required resources such as manpower, funds, equipment, and a targeted time frame, in which to achieve this vision.

This publication contains seven themes/components, which are in line with ongoing and past efforts in the field of disaster risk management and development planning in Sri Lanka. The strategy proposed under this disaster management framework for Sri Lanka covers the areas of policy, institutional mandates and institutional development; hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment; multi-hazard early warning systems; disaster preparedness planning and response; disaster mitigation and integration into development planning; community based disaster management; training education and public awareness.
