Vanuatu: National cyclone support plan 2016-2017

This plan details the prevention, preparedness, response and recovery arrangements in the event of a cyclone impacting on the Republic of Vanuatu. It clearly states the guidelines and information for all responding agencies on what needs to be done for coordinated planning during a cyclone in line with the National Disaster Management Act NO 31 of 2000 and the Disaster Risk Management National Action Plan 2006-2016. 

This Cyclone Support Plan includes lessons learned and recommendations following the devastating Category 5 Tropical Cyclone Pam (TC Pam) in March 2015.

Consultations have been conducted with various government agencies and working stakeholders to collect their inputs and include them in this review of the plan. 

This document is the foundation of all agencies to see how best they can prepare to respond to cyclones at the right time, with the right resources, for the benefit of the affected people anywhere in Vanuatu.
