NDMA’s Narrative

The NDMA, in its narrative of different activities taking place during the global climate conference COP-28, has said that Pakistan is one of the first nations to fully remodel its Proactive Disaster Management System, incorporating high-tech processes and innovative solutions to boost its resilience and preparedness through newly- established National Emergencies Operation Center (NEOC). As the world faces climate change challenges and their impacts, NDMA Pakistan is ready to share its best practices and learn from others at the COP28 conference.

National Common Operating Picture (NCOP), through the dynamic platform of NEOC, is developed that integrates data from different sources and real-time information regarding temperature, weather, glaciers melting, precipitation, glaciers melting, El Nino, La Nina, etc. This enables analysis for early warnings and timely response.
