Law 2003-010 National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management
The law provides mechanisms and measures to safeguard hazards and disasters. The strategy for DRC is based on preventive measures, warning, preparation, management, relief, recovery, reconstruction and development.
The institutional structure for DRM activities includes: the National Council for Disaster Risk Management, a high level co-ordination and strategic decision-making body that is presided over by the Prime Minister and comprised of ministerial representatives; and the National Office for Disaster Risk Management, under the Ministry of Interior. The law calls for the decentralization of DRM responsibilities to the regional, district and commune level.
The SNGRC is currently being revised.
