Director's Welcome
    

Assalamualaikum wbt and Greetings,

 

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Che Azlan Taib
Welcome to Disaster Management Institute (DMI) School Centre of Excellence (SCoE), Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) official website. Through our understanding, we have come to realised that the world has seen more and more disasters affecting greater population recently. 

It is estimated more than 160 countries where quarter of their population are in the areas of high casualty risks due to one or more natural and man-made disasters. Also, potential conflicts due to war posed additional threat on top of the damages caused by natural disasters. Hence, it becomes necessity in disaster management, where disaster resilience community is the aim. 

In response to that, UUM has taken a bold initiative to set up the School Centre of Excellence – the Disaster Management Institute to propagate the importance of disaster management research area through disseminating knowledge and to promote life-long learning in disaster management to community.

It is hoped this official website provides useful information and benefit to UUM members and all other visitors. I sincerely welcome positive feedbacks to improve this web page and serve you better. On behalf of DMI thank you for your time to visit us and happy surfing the Official Website of the Disaster Management Institute (DMI).
