83 students graduate with certificates in disaster management

Building capacity to respond to disasters in the country is vital with the recent El Nino season and now that wet season. Having information and knowing how to manage disaster before it strikes can saves lives and this was exactly what the 83 students at the University of Papua New Guinea who graduated with certificates in Comprehensive Hazard and Risk Management (CHaRM) were trained to do.

This training is an initiative of the National Disaster Center and the strand of Environmental Science and Geography under the faculty of the School of Natural and Physical Science at the university to train and equip young people to assist in provincial governments and local wards in coming up with disaster management policies and identifying risks in disaster prone Areas. One of the graduands Mr Nathan Sapala when thanking the university and its partners said the training has equipped him and his colleagues to better manage disaster with the difficulties of geographic settings and ethnicity.
