Chairman National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) Lt Gen Muhammad Afzal Friday said a comprehensive national contingency plan has been devised to avoid flood losses during the impending monsoon season.
Addressing a pre monsoon conference in Islamabad, he said the plan has been finalised in consultation with all stake holders. The comprehensive strategy to deal with flooding was badly needed in the wake of COVID and locust invasion in country’s various districts.
He said Integrated Early Warning System was being strengthened for more effective disaster risk reduction.
