Center for Crisis and Disaster Management
Nowadays, contingency planning for the management of environmental disasters is vital. This is due to the vast increase in the rates of disaster incidents which already threaten the natural life in many places all over the world.
This accounts for the interest AASTMT takes in intensifying its role in the enhancement of crisis and disaster management in the region. This is achieved through the provision of consultation and advisory services to concerned institutions, designing special training courses, and increasing awareness through International Forums, Conventions and Protocols.
It is within this context that AASTMT has established within ISC a Center for Crisis and Disaster Management equipped with an integrated system to fulfill its regional mandate.
The system includes:
- A Crisis and Disaster Management Simulator
- A Chemical Analyses Laboratory
- An Oil Spill Combating Training Center
