The Disaster Services Network
The Disaster Support Network (DSN) brings together experts who support disaster risk management and recovery. This network was initiated as a response to mob violence in March 2018. Our network serves as an advisory body supporting the Disaster Service Centre (DSC). We hope to liaise with all those who are interested in documenting, monitoring and helping in the recovery and in risk management. We are also seeking to establish a comprehensive archive of information on the violence that took place both digital and in paper.Our recent activities are listed below
