Abstract/Summary

A workshop was organised and facilitated by BGS in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Ethiopia and Addis Ababa University on 13th January 2012 on ‘Capacity-building and preparedness for multi-hazards in Ethiopia’. The workshop was designed to bring together a multidisciplinary, cross institute group of the Afar Rift Consortium members plus Ethiopian stakeholders to discuss the range of geohazards and potential impacts in Ethiopia and identify how to support and build in-country capacity for managing multi-hazards, facilitating preparedness and increasing resilience. The workshop occurred in conjunction with the Magmatic Rifting and Active Volcanism Conference in Addis Ababa in January 2012 and discussions were used to formulate a series of recommendations for future action that collectively could be used to increase the awareness of geohazards in Ethiopia, enable timely provision of science to support emergency responses, embed science in policy to reduce risk and increase resilience.
