National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO)

In the 1980's, it was observed that the number of disasters and their impacts were increasing world - wide. This situation alarmed the United Nations Organisation, which held various conferences on the issue, leading to the U N Declaration GAD 44/236 of 1989 declaring the 1990's (1990 - 1999) as the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR).

The IDNDR was brought into force to increase the awareness of the general public of the need for disaster prevention and encourage member states to establish agencies to manage disasters. NADMO seeks to enhance the capacity of society to prevent and manage disasters and to improve the livelihood of the poor and vulnerable in rural communities through effective disaster management, social mobilisation and employment generation.

Its mission: “To manage disasters by co-ordinating the resources of government institutions and non-governmental agencies, and developing the capacity of communities to respond effectively to disasters and improve their livelihood through social mobilization, employment generation and poverty reduction projects.”
