Directorate Disaster Risk Management

Directorate Disaster Risk Management

Climate change continues to affect SADC Members States and increase risks of natural disasters emanating from climate related cyclones, storms, torrential rains and floods in the region.

Namibia is no exception, and is equally vulnerable to a range of natural disasters such as drought, food insecurity and flood events. Hence, a national approach to manage the risks is appropriate and necessary to create a local culture of disaster reduction including disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness, recovery and rehabilitation, is inevitable.

In Namibia, this function is delegated to the Directorate Disaster Risk Management (DDRM) in the Office of the Prime Minister.

Worth noting is that, disaster risk management is a continuous and integrated multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary process of planning and implementation of disaster risk management measures.


The mandate of the Directorate is to strengthen and coordinate disaster risk management activities in Namibia; facilitate the establishment of coordinated system of disaster risk management; provide support to DDRM Committees at regional, constituencies, settlement and local authorities in Namibia and to serve as the Secretariat to the National Disaster Risk Management Committee (NDRMC). The NDRMC and DDRM Committees have been established at government structures.


Namibia has made significant progress in respect of the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 -2030 and National Disaster Risk Management Plan of 2011 (under review).
