National disaster management guidelines for museums

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

These guidelines lay out the basic framework for various ministries that govern museums, as well as individual museums to familiarise themselves with the requirements of a disaster risk management plan. These guidelines should be seen as a template for museum professionals to develop disaster management plans through risk assessment, risk reduction, emergency response and post-disaster recovery.

These guidelines are not a substitute for a plan itself, and only set out the requirements - both physical and institutional - that museums should fulfil in order to reduce disaster risks.

Sections 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are accompanied by indicative checklists, which set out some of the basic actions to be undertaken at each level of disaster risk management. Section 7 deals with awareness generation and capacity building and should be used to develop exercises at museum and institutional levels.
