National Disaster Recovery Framework Tribal Nations Listening Sessions
This listening session is intended to provide information and gather input from Tribal Nations on FEMA’s National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF). Registration is necessary.
Date: June 9, 2022
Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) was last updated in 2016. Looking back across the past six years of disaster activity, it is apparent that the nation’s approach to recovery and the importance of refining and improving upon our shared framework is critical to addressing the Nation’s most difficult immediate and long-term disaster challenges. We are now taking the important steps necessary to document what we have learned and apply these adjustments through the revisions that will be included in the upcoming 3rd Edition of the NDRF.
FEMA kicked off the NDRF update process with a series of visioning and listening sessions with FEMA and Federal partners from November 2021 – March 2022. These sessions provided valuable insight into five key focus areas where the NDRF team should focus our update efforts: Equitable Outcomes, Climate Resilience, Resource Alignment, Roles and Responsibilities, and Mission Integration.
FEMA’s National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) initiative will be hosting two virtual listening sessions with tribal leaders to ensure the NDRF update will facilitate a more collaborative approach to disaster recovery. Each session will be identical in structure and tribal partners will have an opportunity to provide input for the 3rd edition NDRF.
Questions and written comments may be directed to NDRF Project Co-Leads Kimberly Torbert (firstname.lastname@example.org), Tina Velcich (email@example.com), or the NDRF inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org).
