by RTD Journal

The authority of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has been applauded by the United Nations for good disaster management. Mami Mizutori, the Chief of the United Nations Office for Disaster Reduction (UNDRR), said in an interview with a top national daily that the Odisha Chief Minister has provided the political commitment needed to construct a strong and well-resourced disaster management authority.

In an interview with the National daily, Mizutori said, “Odisha’s example provides vital lessons on enhancing disaster risk governance, investing in preparedness and scenario planning, and promoting a broader knowledge of disaster risk.”

“Odisha’s disaster management model has received global acclaim again as @UNDRR Chief Mami Mizutori lauded CM @Naveen_Odisha’s leadership towards creating a world-class mechanism & framework to mitigate natural disasters”, was tweeted by CM Naveen Pattnaik.

Around 7 lakh people were evacuated from dangerous regions in Bhadrak, Balasore, and a few other districts during Cyclone Yaas, which ravaged North coastal Odisha, portions of Jharkhand, and West Bengal. Also, during cyclone Phailin in 2013, the UN complimented Odisha CM’s command and disaster management system.
