Zambia: Disaster management operations manual (2015)

This manual summarises the roles, responsibilities and procedures relating to the management of disasters in general in Zambia. It considers the fact that disasters take place in a local environment and that primary responders are the disaster victims themselves. Furthermore, is the fact that disaster management is a responsibility of each and every member of society.

This Manual is meant to strengthen and concretize relationships and coordination among various players in the country, thereby reducing duplication of efforts among disaster management service providers. It strengthens the monitoring role of Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) and other Government quality and standard assurance institutions. The Manual sets minimum standards in the provision of disaster management services in order to embrace the most effective and efficient ways of saving lives, protecting property and the environment from damage and destruction.
