Disaster Risk Management Programe
 
The Government of Orissa is implementing the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) programme in 16 disaster-prone districts in order to reduce the vulnerabilities in two phases from 2002-08 with the support of the Government of India (Ministry of Home Affairs) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). This Programme is also implemented in 16 other states. Prior to this, UNDP sponsored Community Based Disaster Preparedness (CBDP) programme was implemented in ten blocks of seven coastal districts on pilot basis. The overall goal of the programme is “Sustainable Reduction in Disaster risk in some of the most hazard-prone districts”. The names of the programmed districts are shown in the table given below.
