Manual on Flood Preparedness Program for Provincial andDistrict level Authorities in the Lower Mekong Basin Countries

The Manual on Flood Preparedness for Provincial and District Level authorities in the Lower Mekong Delta Countries has been developed based on assessment of the needs of local disaster management authorities and practitioners to improve flood preparedness planning in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam. The manual would help these provincial and district level DM committees of the riparian countries to develop and implement the Flood Preparedness Program. In addition, this also serves a purpose as a training resource handbook for the national disaster management officials, practitioners and NGOs to conduct capacity building activities on flood preparedness. This Manual was developed by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) through its internal expertise and various training course curriculum, reference material on floods, as well as through collaborative projects with the Mekong River Commission Secretariat (MRCS), the National Mekong Committees (NMCs), the National Disaster Management Offices (NDMOs) and its provincial and district level committees/offices after a series of consultations, training programs at the national and provincial level, and also through the actual Flood Preparedness Program development process in provinces and districts in the Lower Mekong Delta countries, particularly Cambodia and Lao PDR. This Manual is also an outcome of the component 4 of the Flood Management and Mitigation Program (FMMP) of the Mekong River Commission (MRC). ADPC, in collaboration with MRC, has been implementing the following two projects to strengthen the capacities of the provincial and district level authorities.
