<p>From a limited focus on post-disaster activities of response and recovery, disaster management frameworks have evolved over time to include pre-disaster activities of prevention and preparedness. Disaster risk governance, disaster risk reduction and resilience are core aspects of contemporary disaster management frameworks. India is one of the most disaster prone areas in the world with challenges aplenty in effective disaster management. Aligning with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, India evolved the National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) of 2016 as a comprehensive disaster management framework that proposes an integrated approach involving relevant stakeholders for addressing diverse natural and human-induced hazards. The five principles of ISACA's COBIT 5 framework, a widely accepted comprehensive IT governance and management framework for enterprise IT, is used to analyze the NDMP 2016 to identify areas for improvement. © 2016 IEEE.</p>
