BACKGROUND

For the Past 15 years, the PERIPERI U Partners have been involved with Disaster Risk Education, Research and Advocacy across Africa. A major focus of the partners is to reach out to communities and strategic stakeholders on the continent, sharing knowledge and raising awareness about disaster risk in Africa.

To reach new audiences and raise awareness of disaster risk issues, opportunities and initiatives, the PERIPERI U partners are launching a new online discussion series, to discuss disaster risk related topics and themes with a wider virtual community in Africa and beyond.

PERIPERI U Talks are a series of short sessions that allow persons/ representatives of institutions involved in disaster risk and associated fields (like climate change, water sustainability, development etc.) to talk about subjects related to education, science, technology, research, policy, management and other sectors related to disaster risk.

The PERIPERI U Talks sessions take place once every one to two weeks, each session being between 40 – 60 minutes (proposed time: 12h00 – 13h00 Central African Time). Sessions will be hosted via Zoom and streamed live via various social media platforms to allow for audience engagement.

Recordings of the Talk Sessions will be posted on the PERIPERI U website https://www.riskreductionafrica.org/, Online Resource Centre http://lib.riskreductionafrica.org/, and other social media and web platforms (with permission from the Talk Guest).

All video recordings will be made available to the Talk Guest for them to use as they wish (e.g. as teaching materials, etc.)
