Pakistan: National disaster risk reduction (DRR) policy

This policy document introduces a proactive and anticipatory approach by laying special emphasis on risk assessment, prevention, mitigation and preparedness, with the aim of creating a resilient nation.

The document is divided into four chapters: (i) chapter one assesses risk awareness and preparedness in Pakistan, finding that Pakistan's current disaster risk reduction (DRR) capacity is insufficient; (ii) chapter two outlines the National Disaster Management Authority's (NDMA) vision for capacity development in Pakistan, with a focus on vulnerable populations; (iii) chapter three explains NDMA's plan for policy interventions, particularly for development in the areas of risk knowledge, mitigation, and preparedness; (iv) chapter four explains NDMA's implementation framework to mainstream DRR in Pakistan, including plans for financing, monitoring, and educating students on disaster preparedness.
