The upper legislative chamber of the Rwandan parliament passed a new bill on disaster management. It is the first ever bill in Rwanda that will address the management, prevention, and mitigation of causes of natural and human- generated disasters in the East African nation.

Besides disaster prevention, it includes rescue efforts during a disaster, the conduction of community awareness programmes and training personnel to be prepared to cope with a disaster.
