Afghanistan: Disaster management strategy (2014-2017)

This strategy aims to expand co-ordination and collaboration within Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) Programmes to the greater benefit of those affected by natural hazards. This strategy will help in establishing focused directions in shaping interventions for disaster management, improving cohesiveness, and reducing or removing duplication of efforts amongst internal and external stakeholders.

The strategy is linked to MRRD’s 1389-1393 Strategic Intent in relation to disaster management, Afghan National Development Strategy (ANDS), which seeks to make Afghanistan a disaster-resilient country through promoting sustainable development as well it draws its strengths from regional and international commitments such as the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA).

The strategy is developed for the next four years and lends its focus towards institutional mainstreaming, capacity development, knowledge management, institutional linkages, implementation mechanism and key activities for disaster management by addressing the social and economic needs of vulnerable groups pre and post disasters using equitable approaches in coordination with key stakeholders within the Ministry as well as externally.
