I-DIEM was pleased to discuss the challenges of marginalization and inequity in emergency management and provide recommendations for any necessary changes to FEMA policies, programs, or statutory authorities that address the challenges. As was discussed during the session, the challenges of marginalization and inequity in emergency management are significant, widespread and complex.

The National Advisory Council (NAC) advises the Administrator on all aspects of emergency management, including preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation for natural disasters, acts of terrorism and other manmade disasters. Legislation required that FEMA establish the NAC to ensure input from and coordination with state, local, tribal and territorial governments, nonprofit, and private-sector emergency management communities on the development and revision of plans and strategies; the administration of and assessment of FEMA’s grant programs; and the development and evaluation of risk assessment methodologies.
