Monsoon contingency plan - 2008

Source(s):  National Disaster Management Authority (Pakistan) (NDMA)

In this document, NDMA emphasises the contingency process as a preparedness measure for response to natural hazards. Following contingency planning for winter hazards, this exercise focuses on planning for the oncoming monsoon season to identify and analyze related risks for their humanitarian impact, and to define roles and responsibilities of diverse national stakeholders for preparedness and response. The document also provides timely planning inputs for undertaking similar exercises down the implementation chain.

Key anticipated outcomes are: generate awareness for building institutional capacities for response, create political will for earmarking required resources, build integrated planning capacities, and most importantly define preparatory measures for monsoon hazards. The planning process must match complexity of the hazards confronted which over the years has grown much beyond the one hazard riverine floods phenomenon.
