The National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) aims to streamline disaster management systems in the country. This includes clearly identifying roles and responsibilities of the National Commission (National Disaster Management Commission) and the Afghan National Disaster Management Authority along with its provincial offices, the Provincial Disaster Management Committee and associated line ministries, NGOs, and International Organizations. The plan lays out operating procedures for risk reduction, response and recovery. It thus lays out principles, structures and procedures for mitigation, preparedness, impact assessment, rescue and relief, and recovery activities. The plan operates within the Law on disaster response, management and preparedness in the Islamic Sate of Afghanistan.
