Myanmar: National earthquake preparedness and response plan

When an earthquake impacts Myanmar, this plan seeks to minimize damage to property, reduce injury and lives lost, and establish normality in the lives of those affected in a timely manner.

The plan aims to practice the preparedness measures and response functions which need to be coordinated among relevant departments and organizations to reduce the risk of earthquakes. The plan has two main parts: preparedness and response. The first part includes the preparedness measures which can be practically implemented in collaboration with relevant government departments and communities. The latter part includes the response functions by the National Disaster Management Committee and it’s Work Committees if a damaging earthquake were to occur.

The lessons learnt and experience of implementing the plan will be reviewed and revised as necessary by the National Disaster Management Committee. The revised plan will be shared with National Disaster Management Work Committees.
