Gujarat Disaster Management Policy
Gujarat is prone to multi-disasters. Disasters have caused extensive damage to life and property and have adversely impacted economic development. The GSDMA has formulated the Gujarat State Disaster Management Policy (‘GSDMP) to reduce the detrimental effects of disasters on overall socio-economic development of the state. This policy is in consistent to National Disaster Management policy. The policy covers the three phases of disasters and lays out programmes for these three phases.
1. Pre-Disaster Phase – Prevention, Mitigation & Preparedness
The pre-disaster phase includes prevention, mitigation, and preparedness activities.
2. Impact Phase –Emergency Relief Measures and Relief
This phase includes all measures that are taken immediately in the aftermath of a disaster. The speed and efficiency of the response in this phase will crucially the loss to life and property
3. Post-Disaster Phase – Reconstruction & Rehabilitation. The thrust of Government policy in this phase will be to ensure a speedy return to normalcy and mitigation of long-term consequences of the disaster.
The strategy for implementing the GSDMP emphasizes an integrated approach to disaster management. The Government of Gujarat has envisaged the development of a holistic approacgh to manage disasters on a more proactive basis.
