THE CENTRE

The Centre for Disaster Risk Management and Development Studies (CDRM & DS) is a training, research and development unit under the office of the vice chancellor. It was established in June 2009, following a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the Federal University of Technology, Minna. The establishment of the Centre is part of the global efforts to reduce the risks of natural and man-induced disasters that are threatening the sustenance of development efforts. Since its establishment, the Centre has commenced training and research activities. The main focus of our activities is Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) as adopted by the Hyogo Framework for Action which set the guidelines for the reduction of vulnerability to hazards and emphasized the mainstreaming of DRR into everyday decision and development activities. The overall goal is to substantially reduce disaster related losses in human settlements across the globe.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to become a reputable Centre of excellence in research and development in the area of Disaster Risk Reduction at the national, regional and international levels.

Mission Statement

The mission is to train highly skilled personnel at the post-graduate level and to conduct result oriented researches on Disaster Risk Reduction with a view to building human capacity and the required data base for achieving a sustainable DRR in Nigeria.
