Understanding the importance of the plan and that of the views of stakeholders who are either victims or are responders to disasters, Oxfam India in collaboration with Sphere India, State Inter Agency Groups and partners has led a process of consultation to take inputs from relevant stakeholders on the draft NDMP. In this process, 11 district, 4 state and 1 National Consultation were organized covering the states of Assam, Bihar, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and Kerala accessed at A report on making india’s national dm plans inclusive

We are happy to share with you a compiled report developed based on these consultations. The report highlights the rationale, the process and the recommendations derived from these consultations. We believe this will be really helpful for NDMA to make the NDMP, 2018 inclusive. We are also sharing all the State and District Consultation Reports for any further reference (these can be accessed at )

Though the time for organizing these consultations was very short, we have attempted to bring 351 practitioners and experts from government and NGOs, the affected communities and their representatives in a common platform to discuss the plan and to give suggestions for improvement of the same. We believe that such a process will be fairly useful and relevant if it is carried out at scale covering the entire nation.
