The Hon. Anura Priyadarshana Yapa, Minister of Disaster Management assumed duties today at the Ministry of Disaster Management.

 The Hon. Minister addressed the media and emphasized the necessity of intervening and providing directions to prevent/minimize the impacts of natural and human induced hazards.  

Hon. Minister further added that, paying attention to pre disaster management is more important than providing relief to the victims of disaster. The gradual increase of global temperature would have disaster repercussions to Sri Lanka as an Island Nations. Therefore we seriously consider  mitigation and adaptation measures to minimize disaster impacts in future.

World community has observed increasing trend in disaster as well as loss and damages to lives and properties. The Minister was confident that the experiences gained by him as the Minister of Environment could be applied effectively in the field of Disaster Management, to minimize suffering of People.
