The first hazards and vulnerability Atlas was launched on Tuesday 18th August, 2015 in Lilongwe, Malawi. The Atlas was officially launched by the Principal Secretary of Disaster Management Affairs, Malawi, in the presence of the Principal Secretary of Lands, Housing & Urban Development, Malawi, and the Principal Secretary of Defense, Malawi. The Atlas contains maps and statistics that clearly show the different hazards such as floods, droughts, diseases, and earth quakes, and their frequency, intensity and location in a spatial manner. It also gives details of vulnerability of the population to these hazards.
