Nigeria: Stakeholders endorse national plan for disaster risk reduction

Source(s):  The Guardian

Ahead of the global talks in Cancun, Mexico next month, stakeholders have approved three documents that will assist Nigeria to fulfill requirements for the 15-year Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).

The framework provides the way forward to prevent and reduce disaster risk in order to achieve resilient and sustainable development.Under the leadership of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and embracing all actors at all levels, the Sendai framework offers a solution to saving lives, livelihoods and assets as well as reducing the fiscal burden on government.

Specifically, Nigeria’s stakeholders met last week in a two-day workshop in Keffi, Nasarawa State, organised by NEMA with the support of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and validated the National Plan of Action on the implementation on Sendai Framework on DRR, structure and framework for the national Platform on DRR and National Policy on Disaster Risk Reduction.
