Established in July 2008, the University of Pretoria Natural Hazard Centre, Africa (the former Aon Benfield Natural Hazard Centre, Africa) is a multi-sponsorship collaboration between the University of Pretoria and partners from the industry. The Centre will continue its excellent work in the field of natural hazards and risk modelling under the directorship of Prof Andrzej Kijko. It is expected that under the new sponsorship model, the Centre will be able to expand and extend its focus to include a broader spectrum of natural hazards that are relevant to the whole continent of Africa. The new Centre will continue to play its dual role of research and education in the field of natural hazards and will serve as a hub of information for the engineering, disaster management and insurance industries.
