National Policy on Disaster Management 2009”-GOI

 

Union cabinet, Government of India, approved “National Policy on Disaster Management 2009” on 22nd October 2009. It was prepared by the National Disaster Management Authority. India is prone to multiple hazards and related vulnerability. 58.6 per cent of the landmass is prone to earthquakes of moderate to very high intensity; over 40 million hectares (12 per cent of land) is prone to floods and river erosion; of the 7,516km long coastline, close to 5,700 km is prone to cyclones and tsunamis; 68 per cent of the cultivable area is vulnerable to drought and hilly areas are at risk from landslides and avalanches. There are the risks related to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) disasters. All these hazards have increased human vulnerability in India.

 

The National Policy on Disaster Management has been developed with the vision “To build a safe and disaster resilient India’. It envisages the promotion of a culture of prevention, mitigation, preparedness and response.

 

It provides detailed legal /technical/institutional/ financial arrangements for disaster management in India.  Policy takes Disaster Management as continuum process comprising six elements; prevention, mitigation and preparedness in pre disaster phase response, rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery in post disaster phase.
