The National Plan for Disaster Management 2008-2015 is an outcome of the national and international commitments of the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) and the Ministry of Food and Disaster Management (MoFDM) for addressing the disaster risks
comprehensively. The plan has been developed on the basis of the GoB Vision and
MoFDM mission to reduce the vulnerability of the poor to the effects of natural,
environmental and human induced hazards to a manageable and acceptable humanitarian level by a) bringing a paradigm shift in disaster management from
conventional response and relief practice to a more comprehensive risk reduction culture and b) strengthening the capacity of the Bangladesh disaster management system in improving the response and recovery management at all levels. The plan reflects the basic principles of the SAARC Framework on Disaster Management.
