HNP – A conference on reviewing disaster prevention and control in 2016 and figuring out tasks for 2017 was held in Ha Noi on April 17. The event saw the attendance of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong, among others.

At the conference.

In 2016, ministries and localities have actively implemented drastically and effectively the Law on Natural Disaster Prevention and Control.

Especially, 14 interdisciplinary missions led by leaders and members of the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control were established to inspect and manage the work of natural disaster prevention and control in localities across the country.

Provinces and cities have actively used local budgets, disaster prevention funds and other resources to organize training, exercises to raise public awareness on natural disaster prevention and control, review and develop disaster response plans.

However, last year Viet Nam suffered from many natural and man-made disasters causing severe consequences, losses of 39.72 trillion (1.75 billion USD). Natural disasters in 2016 made 264 people dead or missing, while 364,977 houses were damaged. Agriculture, aquaculture, road and irrigation system were also affected.

According to the forecast of the Natural Central for Hydro-Meterology Forecasting, the weather in 2017 will be complicated with temperatures likely to be higher than the average of previous years.

Addressing the conference, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) Nguyen Xuan Cuong, who is also Head of the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control said that, in 2017, the work of disaster prevention must be ready from prevention, response and overcoming.

It’s necessary to improve capacity, strengthen facilities and equipment for local forces at all levels to ensure professionalism, always ready and promptly handle situations that may occur in response to natural disaster in the most effective way.
