dc.description.abstractThis study sought to examine the legal framework governing disaster management in Kenya. The study appreciates the gravity of disasters and the need for legislation of disaster management activities, in a bid to curb and reduce the effect of disasters, in the event that they occur. The objective of the study was to establish the extent to which a functioning legal framework for disaster management adequately facilitates the management of disaster. The study finds that a good legal framework, could go a long way in effectively managing disaster. Looking at the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (South Africa) , the study observes that some of its provisions are key to ensure a functioning system, such as the express allocation of funds to be used in disasters and the establishment of key bodies, vital in managing disasters. The study then proposes a National Disaster Management Bill for drafting and assent for use in Kenya.en_US
