Society, government officials, policy makers, planners, implementers as well as ground level practitioners, in one way or another are involved in combating these incidents to reduce disaster risks. However there is lack of effective leadership and adequate knowledge in disaster resilience that has affected their full involvement in such activities hence low improvement in disaster risk management.
As a result there has been an increasing need to develop a new generation of disaster resilience leaders as well as strengthen the capacity of existing leaders in the field of disaster risk management.
