WP1 - Vulnerability Assessment:

Research currently underway in Ibadan for WP1 innovates a city scale DesInventar methodology that is explicitly designed to draw out extensive as well as intensive loss data and underlying social vulnerability. 

DesInventar (see www.desinventar.org) has been piloted in several other cities in Africa providing scope to feed into this methodological discussion and for comparative analysis. The VCLA methodology will be adopted opening scope for collaboration and learning with Mzuzu University.

In recent years, lives and property worth millions of dollars have been destroyed in fire disasters in secondary schools around  the world.

Community-based organisation and action can contribute greatly to disaster risk reduction, and interlinked to this, to building resilience to the impacts of climate change.

The inhabitants of African towns and cities face a range of hazards, which can best be described as representing a ‘spectrum of risk’ from events that can cause death, illness or injury, and impove

The ability to rapidly mine large climate datasets as multi-disciplinary processes evolve in a particular context is becoming increasing critical.  It is a significant obstacle to multi-disciplinar
