It is well understood that securing development gains through disaster risk management and risk-informed planning will require an all-of-society approach and broad engagement across government sectoral and ministerial lines. Accordingly, the NRP strategically takes an approach that engages the following ministries as government cooperating agencies:
The Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief (MoDMR) due to its mandate, expertise and structure for disaster risk management and implementation of the Sendai Framework;
The Planning Commission, due to its responsibility for the country’s overall socioeconomic planning and financial policies, including the approval of all government revenue and development programme projects;
The Ministry of Women and Children Affairs (MoWCA) due to its mandate for ensuring the rights and supporting the empowerment of women;
The Local Government Division (LGD), as it is mandated for local level infrastructure planning and development.
