Our Story

Disaster Risk Management NPC (t/a DMS NPC) was originally founded in 1999 as a private company and now operates as a Non Profit Company (NPC) since 2017.


DMS NPC operates in the disaster risk management field, focusing on the delivery of tailor-made solutions with the intent of effectively managing disaster risk and enhancing community resilience. 

Our Organisational Structure

DMS NPC's structure enables development and supports the building blocks within communities, to help create mature communities which are resilient to known priority disaster risks.


DMS NPC’s organisational structure aligns to the company’s primary strategic goals developed to ensure resilient communities that are self-reliant and adaptable through sustainable livelihoods.

With a visionary, dedicated and passionate team, DMS NPC aspires to create and support the building blocks within communities, to develop and build mature communities, resilient to known prior disaster risks.

Our Business Approach

With the shifting of paradigms from reactive emergency management to disaster risk reduction, adaptation and resilience, there is greater emphasis on proactive pre-disaster and developmental interventions.


DMS NPC’s Approach to Disaster Risk Management

DMS NPC’s Approach to Disaster Risk Management shows two interlinking cycles, namely the developmental planning and operational planning cycles. The three common components shared between the two cycles are: ‘understanding risk’, ‘risk reduction planning’ and ‘early warning systems’. DMS NPC strives to support each of the cycles represented above, and uphold and enhance each of the components in every project and programme DMS NPC is tasked to deliver.

Our Dynamic Process

DMS NPC’s process involves identifying and understanding local needs and disaster risks in order to develop tailor-made community based solutions for effective disaster risk reduction and sustainable development.


For any planning process to be successful, one must first understand local needs and disaster risks. The outcome of this is a dynamic community based disaster risk profile. DMS NPC facilitates the collection, analysis and evaluation of information relating to disaster risk (hazards, conditions of vulnerability and capacity) through participatory mapping and consultative workshops with communities and other relevant stakeholders. The outcome of the dynamic disaster risk profile will be used to continuously inform ongoing development and disaster risk planning processes.
