Republic of the Marshall Islands national disaster risk management arrangements

The national disaster risk management arrangements (NDRMA) provide the structure to enable the continuous identification, monitoring and assessment of current as well as possible future hazards and vulnerabilities and manage associated risks in a manner to minimise their possible adverse consequences.

An all hazards approach, by definition, includes those hazards related to climate change. Actions to reduce vulnerability and increase resilience across the DRM spectrum, includes those actions designed to address climate change hazards. The NDRMA creates an environment where all disaster risk is assessed collectively and may be integrated in a policy, program and planning context.

The NDRMA recognises the roles played by community, state, national, regional and international partners, and the need to be integrated within a coordination framework, ensuring personnel across all sectors have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities within the system.
