Nigeria - National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA)
Nigeria - National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA)

In 1972/1973 there was a devastating drought across Nigeria, resulting in severe negative socio-economic consequences and caused the loss of many lives and property. This led to the establishment of the National Emergency Relief Agency (NERA) in 1976, although limited in scope. NERA was charged with the responsibility of mobilizing and distributing relief materials to disaster victims. The Government in 1993 expanded the scope of NERA to include all areas of disasters. However, in 1997, NERA organized a National Workshop involving major disaster management stakeholders, to deliberate on the need for an effective disaster management system in the country. The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) was established in 1999 for the coordination and integration of disaster management programmes and activities in Nigeria. These are being executed through the formulation policies, plans and guidelines on all activities relating to disaster and emergency management, promoting research activities, monitoring of the state of preparedness of stakeholders, data collection, education, and public enlightenment on disaster risk reduction in the country. The NEMA Act also provides for the setting up of State Emergency Management Agencies/Committees (SEMA’s) and Local Emergency Management Committees (LEMCs) at the State and Local Government respectively, to handle disaster management functions at those levels.
