Volume II: Drought

The purpose of this National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) is to:

  • Guide government and other implementing stakeholders in prioritising the implementation of post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA) findings and guide recovery investment and resource allocations across short-term humanitarian needs and medium- to long-term reconstruction;
  • Help articulate a vision for recovery;
  • Define a national recovery strategy;
  • Guide strategic decision-making processes at the national and district levels;
  • Co-ordinate and prioritise multi-stakeholder interventions cross-sectoral and geospatially;
  • Monitor outcomes across all recovery and reconstruction programmes; and
  • Guide government and all stakeholders to better address longer-term disaster vulnerability through Building Back a Disaster-Affected Malawi Better and Safer / 13 coherent programmes that bridge the gap between recovery and development.

This NDRF was initiated by the Government of Malawi with the support of partners following the 2015 floods and acts as an extension to the PDNA for supporting recovery planning and implementation. Following the 2015/16 drought, the NDRF was revised beyond the floods to accommodate recovery and reconstruction needs identified in the 2015/16 Drought PDNA. Additionally, it was deemed as critical to building disaster resilience that the NDRF established national mechanisms for co-ordination; financing; monitoring and evaluation; and development and implementation of the NDRF for ongoing and future disasters.
