The objective is to support the Government of Samoa develop a multi-hazard early warning (MHEW) Policy and revise its National Disaster Management Plan to strengthen disaster preparedness and response.Given discussion with the government, we propose that the revision to the National Disaster Management Plan be deleted from the objectives.The government requested support for developing a social protection policy which is likely to include adaptive social protection.
