UN Reports FANI Loss

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has appealed international agencies, national NGOs, the private sector and the civil society joining hands in the recovery and reconstruction efforts with affected communities and the Government of Odisha.

 
Mr.Patnaik on 6 August released a cyclone Fani - Detailed Damage And Loss Needs Assessment (DLNA) report across 15 sectors. UN Resident Coordinator in India, Renata Lok-Dessallien graced the occasion.
 
Chief Secretary Aditya Prasad Padhi, Development Commissioner Asit Kumar Tripathy, Agriculture Production Commissioner Gagan Kumar Dhal, Special Relief Commissioner, Bishnupada Sethi and other officials were present.
 
The DLNA assessment was undertaken by the Government of Odisha in collaboration with The World Bank, Asian Development Bank and the United Nations post the cyclone. Ten UN agencies (UNDP, UNICEF, WHO, WFP, FAO, ILO, UNESCO, UNEP, UNFPA, UNWOMEN) participated in the assessment.
 
Speaking on the importance of the assessment, the Chief Minister Mr.Patnaik said, “Odisha has set global benchmarks in handling disasters by leveraging technology, strengthening institutional capacities and building resilient measures that helped it face this calamity of national magnitude.”
 
This year, which is the 20th year since the super cyclone, the government will release a Roadmap for Disaster Risk Resilience that will guide the state to be prepared, recover, rehabilitate and reconstruct better than the pre-disaster levels.
 
This report is a collaborative effort of the Government of Odisha, the Asian Development Bank, the United Nations and the World Bank to support the cyclone recovery process. The assessment spanned over a period of 20 days comprising a team of more than 100 multisectoral experts from above agencies along with officials from various departments, local NGOs and eminent experts. It covered 14 most affected districts prioritized by the state government.
 
The estimation of the damage and losses by the assessment team is based on the data made available by the various line departments, that was validated by field visits in 5 most affected districts. It estimates the total damage and loss to be INR 24,176 crore (US$ 3.4 billion) and recovery needs are INR 29,315 crore (US$4.1). The infrastructure sectors were the hardest hit and constitute about 42% of the total needs and the social sectors which include housing, constitute 36% of the total needs.
 
Speaking at the launch, the UN Resident Coordinator in India, Ms. Lok-Dessallien said, reducing economic losses due to disasters is critical for reducing the poverty and vulnerability of the people of Odisha. A sustained recovery effort with strong focus on Resilient Housing, Resilient infrastructure and Resilient Livelihoods will provide an opportunity for building resilience, meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, and improving the well-being of the people in the state.”
