legislation type Executive
Passed in 2013
This National Disaster Risk Management Plan is the guiding document for addressing disaster risk management in Rwanda. The document pursues the mission and goals of disaster management laid down by the National Disaster Management Policy 2012. The plan is to be used by all government and non-government sectors as the basis for developing their own sub-plans, systems and arrangements (health, transport, agriculture, and public works). 

Main goals are 1) to strengthen the institutional capacity of MIDIMAR and its stakeholders to effectively implement disaster management programmes, 2) to create a programming
framework incorporating Government, Agencies and Departments, Non-Governmental Organizations and the private sector in Rwanda, 3) mitigation of the impact of disasters on livelihoods, property, the environment and economic activity, 4) to perform research that will support an implementation of the plan and upgrading the scope of the plan to respond to the changing risk environment.
