Disaster Risk Management

Disaster Risk Management is a multi-disciplinary and faceted function. In most instances, when developing and implementing plans, there is a need for a well designed approach and engagement of various role players and stakeholders.

Our participative approach and processes facilitate the development of relevant strategies and plans, which upon implementation meet the need. In short, we don’t stop at planning, but ensure that we support the client through the implementation phase.

The service offering includes;
Disaster Risk Assessment | Risk Reduction Strategies | Disaster Risk Response and Recovery | Research and Report Writing
