The National Disaster Management Unit, in collaboration with stakeholders, developed a National Emergency / Disaster Response Plan (NERP) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) which was signed in June 2014. Since then, there have been changes in policy, legislative and institutional frameworks. It is also noted that there has been hazard variability and there are emerging issues that were never taken into consideration during that time. It is against this background that we have embarked on a process to review the Plan between June 2021 to November 2021. The main objective is to realign the plan to the current structures, polices and best practices in the bid to make it more actionable and evidence based. Line Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) alongside other stakeholders have been invited to participate in the process since their inputs are critical.

The Initial Review Workshop is scheduled for 27 June to 04 July 2021 in Mombasa at a venue that will be communicated to the delegates. Should you have input (s) to this effect, please send your written submissions to our official email info.ndmu@disastermanagement.go.ke
