Disaster Risk Reduction, Disaster Management
Disaster Management Act, 2005 mandated to develop District Disaster Management Plan (DDMP) for all the districts of India. In this process, the Government of Bihar (GoB) has been developing multi-hazard DDMPs for all the 38 districts of the state. Bihar is a state with high hopes and aspirations.
