The Disaster Management Act 2005 provides for integration of preventive/mitigating measures into development plans. The Disaster Management policy 2009 also calls for integration and synergies in efforts of the government for risk reduction. Accordingly, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), the nodal Ministry for Disaster Management, has underscored the need for an integrated, multi-sectoral approach to disaster risk reduction, and to strengthen disaster risk reduction in key sectors, such as education, agriculture, urban development, environment and health etc. through mainstreaming DRR in development planning. MHA also shared a set of recommendations with the Central Ministries/Departments with the request to integrate disaster risk reduction in developmental plans and centrally sponsored schemes.
MHA and UNDP conducted a review study to find out status of integration of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in 13 national flagship programmes in the year 2014. The study also identified entry points for mainstreaming DRR and CCA in the ongoing Schemes/Programmes being implemented by the respective Ministries/Departments in key sectors. It was observed that DRR and CCA considerations are not clearly articulated in many of the Schemes/Programmes being implemented by various Ministries/Departments. Accordingly, a number of general and scheme specific recommendation were given.
In the last couple of years, some of the Schemes have been revamped and new Schemes have been launched by the Government of India. It is now proposed to engage a consultant to assist the Ministry of Home Affairs and UNDP to review the following new Schemes launched by the Government of India and suggest measures for mainstreaming DRR & CCA:
