Development of Crisis Management

The municipality of Vänersborg and the town Omaruru in Namibia applies for municipal partnership grants in order to develop the local crisis management. The project is bounded to four areas of intervention, during a 24 month period.

These areas are development of a systematic risk – and vulnerability analyse, improved rescue service in the field, developed methods for psychosocial treatment and a developed cooperation between the civil servants and volunteers.

As a main tread for this partnership project runs the climate change that gives new conditions for the crisis management in both municipalities.

The overall goal is to contribute to a skilled and well working organization when it comes to crisis management in Omaruru.

This contains a strategic work, a clear organisation with set routines for the rescue service and conditions for a psychosocial care at emergencies.
