ABSTRACT

Kede floodplain is under constant threat of devastating floods annually. The rural dwellers adopted strategies and even the government have developed the National Disaster Management Framework (NDMF) through the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to respond to the issues of disaster risk but substantive success has not been attained. This research seeks to examine the government response strategies to flood disaster in Kede floodplain community with a view of making recommendations to enhance flood risk reduction and management. The study assesses the trends of occurrence of flood disaster in the community; examine the response strategies adopted by the people and evaluate the implementation of the National Disaster Management Framework (NDMF) of NEMA in the study area. Quantitative data gathered for this research was interpreted using descriptive statistics to achieve the research objectives. The study recorded an aggregate of 340 respondents representing 90% who indicated that the early warning response by government has not reduced loss of human lives and assets to flood, while 10% agreed that it has reduced them. The study also discovered poor response by government in the maintenance and upgrading of infrastructure where 86.8% insist there is no maintenance and upgrade on damaged community infrastructures while, 13.2% who cited the world bank RAMP project on few roads claimed there are maintenance. The research also revealed that 95% of the respondents claimed that government does not presently have any prevention, preparedness and mitigation plan or arrangement for the flood prone area while, only 5% of the respondents claimed they have the required prevention, preparedness and mitigation plan on ground. The findings of the study have shown that government response to disaster risk reduction in Kede floodplain area is grossly inadequate and this is key to building a resilient community. The absence of key government response in Kede has weakened the local governance and aggravate their risk and vulnerability of rural livelihoods. Hence, the study recommends that building the technical capacities of the people for DRR at local government level and promoting Communitybased strategies on disaster risk reduction.
