The data required for assessing disaster risk can generally be divided into three categories: hazard, exposure and vulnerability. To date there is no widely accepted approach for storing and sharing such risk-related data using a common data structure. As
The impacts of natural hazards in the form of floods are severe, and lifeline systems such as water supply are at risk. Tanzania is no exclusion to this risk. A 30” water transmission main in Dar es Salaam was broken and dragged away following recent
This Tanzania country risk profile provides a comprehensive view of hazard, risk and uncertainties for floods and droughts in a changing climate, with projections for the period 2050-2100. The risk profile considers a large number of possible scenarios
Following a deadly and disruptive earthquake in September 2016, authorities in Tanzania have embarked on a project to engage school children in community disaster preparedness as part of their Education in Emergency initiative.
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has engaged CIMA Research Foundation to generate risk profiles on flood and drought in 16 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The countries that will be involved in the risk assessment are: Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Rwanda, Swaziland, Tanzania, Ivory Coast, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Gambia, Gabon, Cameroon, Ghana, Sao Tome and Principe, and Kenya.
The thematic report presents the first baseline for displacement risk associated with sudden-onset disasters in the countries of the Greater Horn of Africa with the ultimate aim of reducing future displacement risk. As sudden-onset natural hazards
