National framework in order to reduce earthquakes by multi-stakeholder participation in Turkey: National earthquake strategy and action plan of Turkey (UDSEP-2023)
This paper briefly describes the new strategic approach of Turkey in order to reduce earthquake-related losses. National Earthquake Strategy and Action Plan of Turkey (UDSEP-2023) is a national roadmap in order to reduce earthquake-related losses by 2023 and achieve earthquake resistant and resilient country within this period of time.
The authors ascertain that strategic approaches to disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures are important tools for countries in order to manage DRR activities within a given timetable and coordinated way. This methodology gives the possibility to funding agencies to prioritise the funding for specific projects. By using strategic approaches, including time-limited actions with a clear delineation of roles, loss of multiple funding is prevented. These approaches also motivate responsible organisations to reach expected results within a given schedule.
