This act outlines the overall contours of the National System for Integral Risk Management and Civil Protection to design, propose, and implement disaster risk management policies. It also designates the National Council for Integral Risk Management and Civil Protection as the highest authority for disaster risk management matters in the country. In addition to its regulatory and public policy functions, this act requires the Council to create a National Information Center on Comprehensive Risk Management to promote scientific research and to conduct a public awareness campaign about disaster risk management. This act also contains specific budgetary provisions, establishing the National Fund for Integral Risk Management to finance prevention activities (funds to come from national budget), and the National Emergency Fund to finance emergency response (funds to come from voluntary contributions of national, subnational, and local governments, donations, income tax, sovereign loans, and any other source assigned to it).
