Chief Minister and Chairman of Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA), Neiphiu Rio, is poised to launch the Nagaland Disaster Risk Reduction Roadmap (NDRR) on December 1, as Nagaland state marks its 61st anniversary.
The NDRR Roadmap, developed by NSDMA under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio, is supported by UNICEF. This roadmap is set to be implemented by the 33 line departments of the Government of Nagaland from 2023 to 2030 with the aim of achieving the targets outlined in the Sendai Framework and Sustainable Goals of the State of Nagaland. The thematic action plans, crafted by the 33 Government line departments, will be executed with support from the 15% allocation of the Centrally Sponsored Scheme.
It is noteworthy that Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Disaster Resilience form the foundation of Sustainable Development. Prime Minister Modi has issued a 10-Point Agenda on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) based on the Sendai Framework on DRR 2015-2030.
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction was approved at the 3rd World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in March 2015, held in Sendai, Japan. It serves as the successor to the Hyogo Framework that was in effect from 2005 to 2015, with the approval of the Sendai Framework.
The high priorities of the Sendai Framework include understanding disaster risk, strengthening the governance of disaster risks for managing disaster risks, investments in disaster risk reduction for resilience, and improving disaster preparedness to ensure effective response, recovery, reconstruction, and rehabilitation.
