Vanuatu: Priorities and action agenda 2006-2015 - supplementary for mainstreaming disaster risk reduction and disaster management, 2006

In 2005, the Government, recognising that the current Priorities and Action Agenda (PAA) does not fully address disaster risk reduction (DRR) and disaster management (DM) issues and challenges, requested the SOPAC/PIFS/UNDP/World Bank Partnership to help develop a supplementary PAA on DRR&DM, to complement the current PAA, 2005-2007. This draft supplementary PAA focuses on an additional strategic priority of ‘Safety, Security and Resilience’ of Vanuatu. It is, however, emphasised that disaster risk management is a cross-cutting issue that affects all walks of life, as well as all development priorities and programmes. As such, DRR&DM considerations need to be reflected in the national Vision, Medium Term Strategic Framework and the Strategic Priorities2. These changes are included in this supplementary PAA, together with a detailed strategic priority on ‘safety, security and resilience’.
