Disaster Risk Management Plan -Siraha District
PDF File Size: 1.4 MB | Download   
Siraha district has been responding to a variety of recurring natural disasters through the District Disaster Relief Committee (DDRC) empowered by the Natural Calamity (Relief) Act 2039 promulgated in 1982 which is its policy and legal framework for disaster management. The Act has made provision for the district level management of rescue and relief activities to the Chief District Officer (CDO), who is the ex-officio Chairperson of the District level District Disaster Relief Committee (DDRC). The DDRC springs into relief action only after a particular disaster hits an area. This sort of disaster management has not been used as an –ex ante consideration of disaster preparedness through development planning, administration and management. As an effort of proactive planning for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), the District Disaster Risk Management Plan (DDRMP) has been formulated for the Siraha.The preparation of DDRMP has been commissioned by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to the Practical Action Consulting (PAC), Asia. PAC has facilitated the preparation of Siraha district’s DDRMP along with three other districts viz. Udaypur, Kapilvastu and Arghakhanachi. Due to the district wide implication of the DDRMP, the Siraha DDC has been made accountable of the coordination and monitoring of the activities listed in the DDRMP; and since the DDRMP laid heavy emphasis on potential disaster in the agricultural sector due to climate change, the District Agriculture Development Officer (DADO) who is also the chairperson of the District Technical Implementation Task Group (DTITG), has played a pivotal role in the planning processes.
