The measure will be taken to improve response measures for such calamities, according to the Mid-Term Review of the 11th Malaysia Plan released by the Economic Affairs Ministry today.
It said efforts would be made to strengthen disaster risk management at the community level.
"Regular disaster drills and other community-based disaster risk management exercises will be conducted for the people living in disaster-prone areas," the document said.
It also said that an integrated weather and flood forecasting and early warning system is being developed while the early warning system for tsunami and earthquake monitoring will be enhanced.
The review said disaster risk profiling will be prepared to identify disaster-prone areas.
"This profile will enable the risk reduction and adaptation programmes to be better designed, more targeted and localised," it said.
Building standards and codes will also be reviewed to enable risk reduction to be accounted for in future development.
"In addition, a policy will be formulated as a guide to support and strengthen disaster risk management, including risk reduction, towards ensuring a disaster-resilient nation," the report added.
