Liberia: National disaster management policy

This National Disaster Management Policy seeks:

  • To create a foundation for the development of an effective and functional legal, institutional framework and good governance for disaster risk management (DRM);
  • To provide the basis for sound DRM national and local organization, capacity enhancement and clear allocation of roles and responsibilities;
  • To provide overall direction for integrating disaster risk reduction into development, recovery and humanitarian response policy and plans;
  • To contribute to national risk management applications for sustainable national development; and
  • To strengthen disaster preparedness for effective emergency and recovery response.
  •  

The policy establishes an institutional and operational framework that will drive successful implementation. Because DRR is multidisciplinary and multi-dimensional, all our development and humanitarian partners are called upon to work with Government in building national and community resilience to disasters within the context of sustainable development.
