Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) must be at the forefront of our planning systems and process.
The Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Disaster Management and Meteorological Services Hon. Jone Usamate said all these activities must have a risk management approach built into it.
In officiating at the National Disaster Risk Reduction (NDRR) Workshop for Disaster Liaison Officers, he further said that the ministry has been continuously working towards the mainstreaming of the NDRR policy.
“This can only be achieved if we have multi-sectoral commitment and risk governance.”
The two-day workshop, which is currently underway at the Novotel Hotel in Lami, concludes tomorrow.
