Abstract

Africa is generally regarded as the most vulnerable continent for natural disasters. In South Africa alone, approximately 40 000 people were affected by natural disasters over the past year, and more than 15 million over the past 10 years. It is generally accepted that climate change impacts significantly on the frequency and intensity of natural disasters. A number of global efforts have been initiated to manage and alleviate the consequences of disasters.
