PeriPeri U

Periperi U is a partnership of African universities that spans across the continent and is committed to building local disaster risk related capacity. Established in 2006, with five original members, the partnership has grown to include twelve universities from Algiers to Antanarivo, with institutions in Algeria, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. The goal of Periperi U is to reduce disaster risks in among African countries through improved national and local disaster risk management, due to enhanced strategic human capacity to integrate risk reduction into critical developmental sectors and programmes. The partners of Periperi U believe this can accomplished through building and embedding sustainable ‘multi-tasking’ capabilities in disaster risk and vulnerability reduction capacity building in the twelve selected institutions of higher learning in Africa consistent with global disaster reduction priorities reflected in the Sendai Framework of Disaster Risk Reduction.
