Sierra Leone: Disaster management policy

The disaster management Policy is a comprehensive approach that enhances increased political commitment to disaster risk management thereby encouraging government agencies to take the lead and supported by non-governmental organisations. It also promotes public awareness and the incorporation of disaster risk management into development planning. The policy highlights the sources of funding and the reduction of bureaucracies in accessing such funds for effective disaster coordination.

Objectives:

  • Ensure the integration of disaster risk management into sustainable development programmes and policies to ensure a holistic approach to disaster management.
  • Improve the identification, assessment, monitoring and early warning of risks
  • Improve effectiveness of response through stronger disaster preparedness
