Zimbabwe land has been hit hard by Cyclone Idai unprepared. What are we to do differently? How do we bounce back? Can there be in place a Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Risk Financing & Insurance courses for our African Region. Please if you can assist with the development and implementation of such due to climate change.

Very Interesting to understand and gain some knowledge of disaster risk from losses and damages impacts on assets and how we can address this impacts in the economic pay back of this great losses and damages through financing. This can enable a country to recover especially through the understanding of difference hazards and risk into financing aspects.
