Policy and Plans
DMS can assist in the development of policy documents for any organisation. The process involves workshops where the client’s needs are documented, development of draft policies and the finalisation thereof. A typical example is a Disaster Risk Management Policy Framework.
The correct established Advisory Forum enables the disaster management programme in anorganisation to be integrated and mainstreamed. DMS can assist in the establishment of such fora, including the appointment of nodal/focal points, development of the Terms of Reference to ensure an integrated working methodology.
Memorandum of Agreements
MOAs ensure that capacity is available when needed before and during emergencies. Due to the complexity of the identification of specific needs and the importance of the legal process, DMS assist organisations in the establishment of MOAs.
