Reducing vulnerability and strengthening coping and adaptation strategies for sustainable development

When disaster strikes, all living creatures naturally react with a fight-or-flight response. But what if you’re not strong enough, or have nowhere to run? This is when suffering sets in. Hunger, death, degradation, loss, damage, destruction, desperation. Since 2001, we have the vision to reduce disaster risk – because we can!

The University of the Free State (UFS) Disaster Management Training and Education Centre for Africa (DiMTEC) strives towards informing the public about disaster risk reduction through education. 

DiMTEC’s first course was approved and registered by the South African Qualifications Authority in 2001, after which they joined the Department of Agricultural Economics in the vision of becoming an independent centre, which came about in 2005. 

Objective

The overall objective of the ten-day course is to highlight the complexity and importance of vulnerability and resilience and adaptation strategies in disaster risk management. The target groups are disaster management practitioners, humanitarian workers, students and departmental officials involved in disaster management portfolios in their departments and ministries in South Africa, SADC, AU, and internationally.
