We are developing a seismic risk management framework for East Africa. Our project produces practical tools and guidelines for enhanced disaster preparedness, in partnership with local government and academic institutions.

PREPARE (Enhancing PREParedness for East African Countries through Seismic Resilience Engineering) is a three-year project funded the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Running from 2017-2020, the project aims to overcome existing barriers to designing seismically resilient infrastructure in least developed countries, using advanced risk assessments and suitable low-cost engineering solutions.

2018 PREPARE Workshop

The event built on active research links among the UK and Malawian universities in this project, and was organised by the University of Cardiff and University of Bristol.
