National framework for managing internally displaced persons the Maldives in case of disaster

This framework outlines actions that would guide local, national and international agencies when assisting Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the Maldives in any unfortunate case of a disaster. The framework will be activated under the administration and supervision from the National Disaster Management Centre at the appropriate point in the disaster management cycle.

The aim of this framework is to ensure IDPs receive the level of support stipulated by the internationally accepted guiding principles set by UNHCR on internal displacement and the SPHERE standards (Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response).

At the time of producing this framework, a number of important changes were in progress in relation to national disaster management. A national disaster management bill was being drafted detailing organisational structures, responsible persons, and response mechanisms. At the same time NDMC was developing an Incident Command System for national disaster management. As such, this framework is formulated based on the assumptions that the Bill has been gazetted and the NDMC and key agencies are well aware of the ICS and their roles and responsibilities in the incident of a disaster
