Togolese authorities are validating a protocol for disaster and threat management

(Togo First) - This week, a national workshop was held in Kpalimé to validate the Practical Guide to Disaster and Threat Management. This is a 48-page document that clarifies the roles and responsibilities of local authorities in the management of these situations.

It fosters the integration of disaster risk and threat reduction into development planning tools at the local level.

Management of threats and disasters amidst decentralization

“To efficiently manage emergencies, it is necessary to clarify the roles and responsibilities of the actors involved in the disaster and threat management cycle,” said Col. Yark Damehane, minister of security, at the opening of the workshop. 

Moreover, “in the current context of decentralization, local authorities have a key role to play,” in a context where the State wants to “gradually ensure the transfer of powers to them.”

It is in this perspective, the public official stressed, that the capacity of local authorities to better prevent and manage local disasters and threats becomes “an imperative that will contribute to reducing the vulnerability of populations exposed.”

After it is validated, this practical guide should serve as the basis for decision-making by authorities in the management of disasters and threats.
