provincial Disaster Management Plan
Province level preparedness activities will be planned and decided upon by Province Disaster Management Commissions. The plan lays down protocols for functions at this level under the section on Administrative Structure and the Standard Operating Procedure for Province Governors. The province governors and commissions will be the focal authorities for disaster management functions at province and sub-province levels at present. They will be supported by the district commissions and the administrators till such times as the capacities and resource base of the district authorities are built to a level that they may develop and implement district and local level disaster management plans. This will eventually lead to a national system of community based disaster management.
