SOLUTIONS

DMS offers solutions to various organisational needs.


"Development, human growth and advancements in technology should not be done in isolation or without adequate integration of disaster risk management in order to assure success, sustainability, safety and most importantly, resilience, particularly at the community level. Climb out of your box, leave your silo, look around.... disaster risk management is everybody's business." - Francis Hoets

DMS's Solution Compact Model

With the shifting of paradigms from reactive emergency management to disaster risk reduction, adaptation and resilience, there is greater emphasis on proactive pre-disaster and developmental interventions, often categorized as prevention, mitigation, and preparedness.

The illustration, developed by DMS, shows two interlinking cycles, namely the developmental planning and the operational planning cycles. The three common components shared between the two cycles are: “understanding risk”; “risk reduction planning” and “early warning systems”. Supporting the two cycles illustrated, all solutions are designed to be tailored to any community context or working environment.
