Zimbabwe: National contingency plan 2012-2013
The overall objective of the National Contingency Plan is to help ensure that Government, partners and civil society establish a timely, consistent and coordinated response to anticipated hazards during the 2012-2013 planning period in order to minimise potential humanitarian consequences and initiate linkages for the early recovery of affected communities. It identifies four hazards: hydro-meteorological, biological, GTIs and technological. The Contingency Plan is in line with provisions of the draft National Disaster Risk Strategy which is still awaiting finalisation.
The first section provides details on risks, scenarios, planning assumptions and consequences for each of the identified hazards. The second section summarises the coordination and management systems providing details of roles and responsibilities during assessment and coordination. The third section lays out the activities to be undertaken by different stakeholders.
