Hazard Mitigation Policy and Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

Executive
Plan
Passed in 2006
The Hazard Mitigation Policy (HMP) and Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (NHMP) are designed to work in tandem with the National Emergency Management Plan 0f 2007.

The HMP has been designed to reinforce the institutional and popular hazards mitigation, and notably climate-change related catastrophes. This shall be done through building institutional capacity to assess, mediate and manage risks from hazards, and through enhanced communication and collaboration with citizens.

The NHMP details the HMP orientations with more specific measures, such as the maintenance of a NEMO database used in the case of extreme weather events. The NHMP aims at reducing public expense for emergency and recovery services required by natural disasters, protect the country's prosperity on the long term, ensure an equitable distribution of the risks and associated costs, reduce the liability for loss of life and property from natural hazards, and protect the natural environment.
