We hope that with the setting-up of an all party National Committee on Disaster Management under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister, the implementation of the HPC’s recommendations and the follow-up action thereon would get the necessary attention at the highest and other levels. It will also hopefully generate an informed debate in the country so as to create the necessary national will, consensus and support to its quick implementation at the national level and down to the village and community levels.
We believe that his process would facilitate that implementation of the recommendations of the HPC and ensure that they see the light of the day in right earnest.
The preparation of the report would not been possible without the tremendous support an valuable contribution form a large number of individuals, experts and organizations which we received from all parts of the country as well as from abroad. The report sincerely tries to reflect their ideas, views and experiences, and an attempt has been made to capture as must as possible and transform these ideas into real actions by ways of concrete and specific recommendations.
