The conference of the Disaster Management Institute South Africa is the biggest annual disaster management conference in Africa and routinely attracts more than 350 delegates. This year's theme is "the 2030 resilience, sustainability and adaptation mandate: a new action agenda for disaster risk reduction". The theme is inspired by the outcomes of the Sendai Third World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, which includes the 18 March 2015 release of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The conference provides an annual opportunity for a diverse range of stakeholders in disaster management from across Africa to gather and share skills, knowledge and experience.
The conference will focus on disaster risk reduction, sustainable development and climate change response.
