The DRM harmonization guidelines is the process of harmonizing district / local level DRM plans into 1 consolidated plan lead by Government's Policy task force on DRM.  The objective of this work is to harmonize the three existing local level disaster management guidelines:

  • District Preparedness and Response Plans (DPRP)
  • District Disaster Risk Management Plan (DDMP)
  • Local Disaster Risk Management Plan (LDRMP)

A Flagship 4 led technical working group was formed to provide technical support  to the Government Policy task force for this process. The technical working group has submitted a draft for the harmonized DRM guideline to the Government Policy task force for its review and further action.
