The National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA) has concluded a two-day maiden retreat, where key documents that would strengthen the work of the Agency including Strategic Plan, Financial manual, HR manual, Partnership Framework and Communications Plan were discussed.

NDMA’s Director-General, Lt. Gen (Rtd) Brima Sesay said, following the enactment and launch of the Agency, the institution has made significant strides towards mitigating and managing disasters in the country, adding that adopting the operational documents will strengthen the work and efficiency of the NDMA.

Presidential Adviser and Representative of the Chief Minister at the retreat, Dr. Kawa said the Strategic Plan was a very long process. “We came here as an institution so we can have the framework, the instrument and most of all the content for the Strategic Plan”.

The Deputy Director-General, John V Rogers in his presentation, outlined the aim of the retreat, which he said was to explain to participants the core elements that constitute the Strategic Plan; building the contents and framework of a Strategic Plan for the National Disaster Management Agency.

The DDG said the retreat presents a platform to provide the justification, mission, vision and goal of the plan. He said the motive was to make clear the guiding principles of the Agency.

The retreat provided the scope to look at the implementation of a new strategy, building partnership trust, communication strategy, relief and response, monitoring and the evaluation strategy.

Consultations will continue in support of the development of the final draft and validation of the Strategic Plan, and the development of the other operational documents of the Agency.
