Turkey: The first provincial level disaster risk reduction plan has been prepared

Source(s): Ministry of Interior, Disaster and Emergency Management Authority

The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority of Turkey completed the pilot study that resulted in the first provincial-level disaster risk reduction plan of Turkey in Kahramanmaraş, a province in Turkey. After the high-level meeting, technical meetings and two workshops were organized in order to prepare the provincial level disaster risk reduction plan (abbreviated in Turkish as İRAP). The Kahramanmaraş İRAP has 3 goals, 21 targets, and 225 actions. Most of the actions address the recommendations of the Sendai Framework priorities and thus aims at reducing and preventing disaster risks. In the plan, relevant stakeholders have been designated to accomplish actions in a specific implementation period.

İRAP addresses the need to manage underlying disaster risk drivers and strengthening good governance in disaster risk management, with a focus on local governments including authorities and managers at the city or other sub-national levels. It provides an important boost to efforts to meet a key target in the Sendai Framework, Target (E) which seeks to increase the number of countries with national and local strategies for DRR and also directly related with other SFDRR targets.
