culture. who it serves. Many frameworks cycle through some variation on some very basic phases: 1) analysis or assessment. where an understanding of the current internal and external environments is developed. where the high level plan is translated into more operational planning and action items. establish agreement around intended outcomes/results. What is a Strategic Plan? A strategic plan is a document used to communicate with the organization the organizations goals. the actions needed to achieve those goals and all of the other critical elements developed during the planning exercise. Strategy Execution is basically synonymous with Strategy Management and amounts to the systematic implementation of a strategy. data reporting. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress. focus energy and resources. and why it does it. What Are the Steps in Strategic Planning & Management? There are many different frameworks and methodologies for strategic planning and management. where on-going refinement and evaluation of performance. and assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. What is Strategic Management? What is Strategy Execution? Strategic management is the comprehensive collection of on-going activities and processes that organizations use to systematically coordinate and align resources and actions with mission. but also how it will know if it is successful. ensure that employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals. While there is no absolute rules regarding the right framework. vision and strategy throughout an organization. where high level strategy is developed and a basic organization level strategic plan is documented 3) strategy execution. . and 4) evaluation or sustainment / management phase. It is a disciplined effort that produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is. most follow a similar pattern and have common attributes. strengthen operations. 2) strategy formulation. and other strategic management issues occurs. communications. Strategic management activities transform the static plan into a system that provides strategic performance feedback to decision making and enables the plan to evolve and grow as requirements and other circumstances change. INTRODUCTION What is Strategic Planning? Strategic planning is an organizational management activity that is used to set priorities. with a focus on the future. what it does.

An analysis of the frequencies of cyclones on the East and West coasts of India during 1891-2000 show that nearly 308 cyclones (out of which 103 were severe) affected the East Coast. Analysed data for the period 1980-2000 shows that on an average. flooding and storm surge in high risk areas. Broad scale assessment of population at risk suggests that an estimated 32 crore people. and construction of coastal embankments in selected places for protection against storms. ii) Construction and sustainable maintenance of Multi-purpose Cyclone Shelters (MPCSs). Key Objectives: The Project aims to fulfill its Mission by undertaking following structural and non structural measures. annually 370 million people are exposed to cyclones in India. thus seriously reversing the developmental gains at regular intervals. loss of public and private property and severe damage to infrastructure. Cyclones occur in the month of May-June and October-November. Climate change and its resultant sea-level rises can significantly increase the vulnerability of coastal population. Aims & Objectives 1. i) Early warning and communication system by improving the Last Mile connectivity. Mission Statement: The National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project seeks to minimize vulnerability in the cyclone hazard prone states and Union Territories of India and make people and infrastructure disaster resilient. of which 24 were severe cyclonic storms. with primary peak in November and secondary peak in May. iii) Enhanced capacity and capability of local communities to respond to disasters. 2. Recurring cyclones account for large number of deaths. Out of the cyclones that develop in the Bay of Bengal. During the same period 48 tropical cyclones crossed the West Coast.

till the declaration of Emergency in 1962. Major recommendations of the policy paper are:  Amendment of Civil Defence Act-1960. adequate awareness and preparedness of the community to respond to any such situation can be crucial in mitigating damage and suffering. can in addition to rescue. loss of human life and destabilization of normal life in society. being a community based voluntary organisation. the policy and scope of Civil Defence underwent considerable rethinking. play a stellar role in the field of public awareness as well as community capacity building to face any disaster. to involve Civil Defence (CD) in Disaster Management  CD to be changed from town specific to district specific  Training infrastructure to be upgraded in all states  Involvement of Youth Organizations with Civil Defence  Involvement of Corporate/ Private Sectors for Civil Defence revamping  Recognition of Civil Defence Wardens  Renewal of Civil Defence services  Capacity Building at the grass root level  Empowerment of Director General Civil Defence  Training abroad  Distinctive identity of Civil Defence  Motivation of Civil Defence Volunteers . new challenges have emerged for the community in the shape of natural calamities or human-induced disasters. CIVIL DEFENCE Background The Civil Defence policy of the Government of India. remained confined to making States and UTs conscious of the need for civil protection measures and asking them to keep ready civil protection plans for major cities and towns under the Emergency Relief Organisation [ERO] scheme. Since the community is invariably the first responder to any disaster situation. After this the organisation has functioned under the parameters delineated in the Act. This document has been approved by Government of India and is now being implemented. relief and rehabilitation. However. Importance of Civil Defence While global geo-political factors have reduced chances of traditional wars. following the Chinese aggression in 1962 and the Indo Pak conflict of 1965. Civil Defence. Civil Defence Revamp NDMA was given the responsibility of preparing a National Policy Approach Paper related to revamping Civil Defence in the country . which culminated in the enactment of the Civil Defence (CD) Act 1968. resulting in large scale destruction of property.

pulse polio drives etc  Publicizing Civil Defence Day . melas.  Involving the organization in local events. Involvment of civil defence in community preparedness by:  Organizing publicity at all levels  Setting up hoardings  Holding awareness workshops  Organizing TV debates. marathons.

The themes underpinning the policy are:  Community based DM.  Capacity development in all spheres. plans and execution.  Cooperation with agencies at national and international levels.  Multi-sectoral synergy. including last mile integration of the policy.Disaster Management Cycle A holistic and integrated approach will be evolved towards disaster management with emphasis on building strategic partnerships at various levels.  Consolidation of past initiatives and best practices. .
