Climate change is negatively impacting the global community and local communities in the SADC region. Extreme weather events are occurring more frequently, posing a threat to human lives and well-being.

Therefore, it is important to learn lessons from past events and manage risks effectively as part of an integrated set of interventions directed at mitigating the harmful impacts of disasters and risks. Comprehensive disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategies are essential for sustainable development and for addressing the needs of vulnerable groups in society. Some countries around the world have started to roll out DRR strategies and have already made substantial progress in this respect.


A disaster risk management conference that is inclusive of local stakeholders, academia, researchers, practitioners, and other key stakeholders is important to gain new insights into sustainable disaster risk reduction and shared learning. The conference offers policymakers, disaster specialists, researchers, academia, scholars, think tanks, civil society organizations, business, and humanitarian organizations the opportunity to exhibit their products, innovations, and initiatives as well as network in one place. The conference aims to harness the broad, interdisciplinary expertise of the delegates to build networks as well as discuss the most pressing issues in disaster risk research across the academic, policy, decision making, and practical disciplines.


Theme: Towards Local Solutions to Early Warning and Disaster Risk Community (SADC) and beyond


Date: 08-10 November 2023
