Mhango: We are making strides.

This comes as some districts have not recovered from the 2015/16 disaster which affected several districts in the country including Phalombe, Chikhwawa and Kasungu.

Speaking during a training of environmental journalists at Malawi Sun Hotel in Blantyre, DoDMA’s Principal Mitigation officer Veronica Mhango said the policies being implemented will ensure that funds are made available in ministries and municipalities.

“As DoDMA we have implemented policies and funds are available in ministries as well as city municipalities so that they become prepared on issues of disasters,” said Mhango.

She added that her department will ensure the promotion of sustainable projects of which some projects have been implemented in Phalombe where a dyke has been constructed in order to prevent floods submerging the areas around the district.

According to Mhango, it has proportioned relief stocks in the three regions so that people are prepared in times of disasters. She further said that government is developing a national sectorial plan aimed at reducing disasters in the country.
