Ministries to prepare roadmap for disaster risk reduction by Dec 2017

New Delhi Oct 6(UNI) Central Ministries would prepare road map for implementing Prime Ministers’ 10 Point Agenda on Disaster Risk Reduction by December 2017.
A resolution to this effect was passed at a special meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) here on Friday. The meeting was chaired by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba.
The meeting was convened to sensitize all the stakeholders about the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Agenda on Disaster Risk Reduction and to discuss implementation of the same. The meeting was attended by Members of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Members of NEC, Relief Commissioners/Secretaries (Disaster Management) & representatives of the States and Union Territories. The 10 point agenda on Disaster Risk Reduction was announced by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the Asian Ministerial Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) held in November last year in New Delhi.
Addressing the participants, Rajiv Gauba said that 10 point Agenda announced by the Prime Minister is a vision document based on three important global frameworks on disaster and sustainable development, namely Sustainable Development Goal, Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
He emphasized that interconnectedness and cooperation among different stakeholders including Central Government, State/UT Governments and other stakeholders could help achieving the targets announced by the Prime Minister. Shri Gauba said that India is one of the most disaster- prone countries due to its climatic and topographical divergence. The NDMA can play a role to set up a mechanism for regular monitoring, he added. He also stressed upon the time bound and specific deliverables for disaster risk reduction on implementation of 10 Point Agenda.
It was also agreed that States would discuss the PM’s 10 point agenda in their State Executive Committee and chalk out time bound plan with specific outcome for implementing the PM’s 10 point Agenda by December 2017.
