During the month of June 2016, Dr. Ben Beeckmans has been lecturing  about global assessment of volcanic hazard and risk, at the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology.

The students received information which can help be helpful for them in the future when, as everybody hopes, Mt. Meru will be adequately monitored.

Important themes in this course were the volcanic  hazards and monitoring,  the assessment of the risks and what it represents for the affected populations.

Alert levels, forecasting, communication  and volcanic emergencies and disaster risk reduction were highlighted
