To increase capacity to reduce and manage disaster risks in Africa, the University of Cape Town and USAID have signed a US$2.9 million agreement that will strengthen 10 African universities in disaster-related scholarship and practice over the next three years.

"The project is urgently needed to reduce Africa's disaster risk profile - one which is significantly shaped by current climate variability and which is expected to worsen under future climate change projections," said DiMP's Dr Ailsa Holloway.
