The National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework 2010-2015 was developed to pursue a proactive and integrated way of reducing risks to hazards through sustainable, innovative, and realistic strategies with a stronger partnership of all stakeholders. The Framework prioritizes a set of challenges that should be addressed in the next five years and provides strategic directions to reduce vulnerabilities and risks to hazards. This aligns Government’s DRR priorities with other national policies as well as international commitments. The Framework complements other national policies and further elaborates the DRR component in the MGDS. This would guide Government in the development of a DRR policy.
