Armenia showcases Policy Reforms for Disaster Resilience at 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction

  Recognizing that disaster risk management (DRM) plays a pivotal role in the country’s sustainable development, the Government of Armenia was one of the first countries in the region, to initiate a strategic review of its Disaster Risk Management capacities in order to reform policies, and strengthen relevant measures and related investments to increase the country’s resilience to natural hazards. More recently, Mr. Davit Tonoyan, the Minister of Emergency Situations, attended the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in Cancun, Mexico to present the Armenia National Disaster Risk Management Strategy and its Action Plan for implementation. The National Strategy, which was supported by the Japan-World Bank Program for Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Management in Developing Countries (administered by GFDRR) and UNDP, is fully aligned with the Sendai Framework for Action 2015-2030 and was recently approved in April 2017 by the Government of the Republic of Armenia.
