Southern Africa, in general, is a region prone to different types of natural disasters and multiple-vulnerabilities ranging from high levels of draughts and floods to other factors such as the compound proportions of multidimensional poverty, spread of HIV/AIDS; the degradation of the environment, seismic activity, climate change, food shortages; technological and other human induced hazards and slow economic growth. Over the recent years, Southern African countries have been experiencing different types of disasters including floods, bush fire, road and industrial accidents. The frequency and magnitude of these disaster/hazards differs from country to country. Except for a few of these hazards/disaster types, almost all of them occur in at least more than one Southern African countries.
