The document outlines the social marketing plan for public awareness campaign for disaster risk reduction, response action, mitigation & early warning in the Maldives. The objective is to design a campaign to enable the population of Maldives to be informed, knowledgeable, and aware of the hazards they face and vulnerabilities that exists within their own community, to enable them to utilize resources, which are accessible to them, to prepare, respond and recover from natural disasters, personally and as a community

During the development of the plan we took into consideration how we could try and revitalize as well as utilize the indigenous beliefs and knowledge and practices which helped our ancestors to live harmoniously with our environment, as well as incorporating within the plan a sustainable infrastructure to continually enable the public to be aware and prepared and avoid livelihood practices that increase their vulnerabilities to an impending disaster.
