Disaster Risk Management

Globally, countries have seen an increasing number of disaster occurrences  which have had  adverse impacts socially, economically and environmentally. With the  phenomenon of climate change gradually showing its effects, it is anticipated that there will be more frequent and severe disaster occurrences.

In order to address the challenges posed by disasters; a pro-active,   holistic and multi-disciplinary approach is required. The Deloitte disaster risk management and risk reduction service offers this approach to the public  sector, private sector, Non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and other relevant disaster risk management role players.

Disasters set governments back in terms of their development plans and investments due to destruction of critical infrastructure and facilities. Often, funds earmarked for development are redirected to recovery and reconstruction efforts. The lives lost during disasters can also not be left without mention. As a result clients require proper institutional arrangements, frameworks/policies, plans and implementation assistance for disaster risk management.

Through suitably qualified and experienced  professionals, Deloitte offers an end-to-end disaster risk management service that is aligned to international best practice and addresses all aspects of the disaster risk management continuum (pre-disaster risk reduction and post-disaster planning).

The approach that Deloitte uses, assists clients  to proactively prevent and mitigate disaster occurrences as part of disaster risk reduction; as well as to prepare for the disasters through proper planning.
