India: Himachal Pradesh state disaster management plan 2017
This Plan presents an updated version of the State Disaster Management Plan 2012, now taking into consideration new developments that have taken place since the adoption of the plan. The plan also presents lessons learned during the course of implementation of the plan. Efforts have been made to build upon the foundation and structure of the 2012 Plan rather than redrawing and reframing a new Plan. The revised Plan has evolved through a process of consultation with the stakeholders and accepted and approved by the State Government. It has encouraged development of various functional, procedural and operational systems for disaster management. The Plan has been structured for easy understanding and clear demarcation of roles and responsibilities for scenarios before, during and after disasters.
