The Meeting of the IORA Cluster Group on Disaster Risk Management concluded successfully today, 6 February 2019. The Meeting resulted in the development of a draft Work Plan for DRM in IORA which includes a proposal to establish a DRM Core Group, among other objectives.

The two-day workshop was organised by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India in collaboration with the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) at Pravasi Bhartiya Kendra, NewDelhi, India.
