Disaster Management in Africa

Art in Tanzania works with corporates and governmental institutions to tackle both natural and artificial environmental disasters. In Tanzania disaster management is poorly known even the communities are not informed about disaster incidents and their management. People and their properties are being affected by floods, earthquakes, landslides, diseases like malaria, cholera, hunger, poverty, desert, global warming due to climate change, and industrial incidents from poor health and safety at working place. This program aims to educate and build Tanzanian people about resilience from the early stage to the last stage of disaster management such as mitigation, preparedness, response, and prevention stage at schools and public in common with the help from the various governmental and non-governmental institutions.
