The Government of Arunachal Pradesh ('GoAP') recognizes the need for a proactive, comprehensive and sustained approach to disaster management to reduce the detrimental effects of disasters on the overall socio-economic development of the state. GoAP believes that a policy that articulates its vision and strategy for disaster management in the state is required. In this context the Arunachal Pradesh Disaster Management Authority (APDMA), with a view to provide guidelines to the various entities involved in disaster management in the state to discharge their functions more effectively, has formulated the Arunachal Pradesh Disaster Management Policy ('APDMP' or 'the Policy').

Arunachal Pradesh is the land of mountains, forests and rivers inhabited by tribal people and the mountainous topography of the state presents an ideal condition for the development of hydro-electric projects. There are five major river basins in the state namely Kameng River Basin, Subansiri River Basin, Siang River Basin, Dibang River Basin and Lohit River Basin. All the major rivers of the State flow in the North-easterly direction and finally drain into the Brahmaputra River. There are many tributaries and distributaries of the said major rivers which also offer suitable sites for the development of hydro-electric power projects.

It has a considerable amount of forest cover which ensures that the forest products also contribute to its economy. The tourism sector of the state, however, has not been fully utilized.



Public Private Partnership (PPP)

The future development of the country hinges on the development of its infrastructure and efficient delivery of its services. The Planning Commission, Government of India estimates that around US$320 billion (14, 50,000 Cr. INR) is likely to be invested in the infrastructure sector over the 11th Plan. A large part of this investment is to come from the private sector with Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode as one of the preferred routes. The PPP approach is best suited for the infrastructure sector as it supplements scarce public resources, creates a more competitive environment and helps to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. To achieve this goal, Government of Arunachal Pradesh has come out with the Arunachal Pradesh Public Private Partnership Policy-2011.
