In general, CDRCR was founded to provide Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM). However, the Centre covers other thematic areas such as School Safety Management (SSM); Health, Safety & Environment (HSE); Conflict Resolution & Peace Building (CRPB).
Disaster Risk Reduction Management (DRRM) aims to reduce the damage caused by natural hazards like earthquakes, floods, droughts and cyclones. This is achieved through an ethic of prevention even though disasters often follow natural hazards.
Each and every school in our system has safety plans in place for a variety of emergencies and, to ensure that each school continually meets our security expectations, security procedures are reviewed as needed and periodically throughout the year by our Department of School Safety and Security.
The Goal of Health and Safety Environment ( HSE) is to protect employees, the public, the environment and to comply with applicable laws and protect the Company’s reputation. HSE departments, of some companies are responsible for environmental protection, occupational health and safety at work
is in place to address the needs of vulnerable people affected by disasters and crises, by working as part of an effective global disaster management team
