Emergency Management & Readiness Progamme (EMaRP)

(in discussion stage)

The KASB Foundation Emergency Management & Readiness program will be a three-year, community-based, disaster risk management program.
The program is designed to improve both village and district disaster management systems so that communities in isolated regions are better prepared for natural disasters. Being better prepared means saving lives. Communities need to plan and prepare before disasters. They need to know how to respond if affected by a disaster. And they need to identify their key strengths in order to quickly recover from the affects of natural disaster.

EMaRP will be designed around three key components:
