Nigerian Construction Risk/Disaster Management Conference 2010.


Sustainable development and disaster reduction are essential preconditions for each other.
Natural disasters severely hamper the progress and achievements of sustainable development while, at the same time, physical infrastructure we are constructing may itself constitute a source of risk in the event of future disasters. This is particularly true in the case of earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters where the majority of victims are killed by their own collapsing houses. From the perspectives of environmental degradation, human intervention, and security aspects, disaster management is a pressing issue for all of us and should be undertaken on a comprehensive basis.
In order to build disaster-resilient nation, NCRDMC will be showcasing senior level speakers, decision makers and key players in the Risk/ Disaster Management, Construction, Oil and Gas, Environmental Health and Insurance sectors to discuss and formulate national policies that will help the Federal government of Nigeria to ensure we have a fairly risk free environment.


Key features:
>> High level representatives from Federal Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Federal Ministry of Environment, Office of the Surveyor general of the federation, Federal Fire Service, Federal Capital Territory Administration, National Insurance Commission, Construction Company’s, Insurance Company’s, Oil and gas and other stakeholders.
