As
with any other island in the world, Zanzibar is vulnerable to various
natural and manmade hazards and disasters. According to the Zanzibar
hazards risk profile of 2021, the island is vulnerable to various
hazards including COVID-19, Cholera outbreaks, pest infestations,
floods, tropical cyclones, drought, Tsunami, earthquakes, food
poisoning, oil spills, building collapse, terrorism, marine accidents,
road accidents, and fire outbreaks. When these events occur, they cause
loss of lives and properties, and environmental and infrastructural
degradation among others.

Zanzibar has experienced several
marine accidents which cause great loss of lives and economic impact to
the Islands. Among the major marine accidents experienced, including
sinking of MV Spice Islander in 2011 and MV Skageti in 2012. Apart from
these two major accidents, there are many more minor accidents that
involve fishermen and other sea users. Most of the affected groups by
marine accidents are children, women, and disabled people.

In
addition, the occurrence of seasonal floods in many areas of Zanzibar
Island resulting from heavy rain leads to the loss of lives and damage
of properties due to inland drowning cases, which cause deaths,
injuries, disabilities, and damage of properties. The occurrences of
such recurrent events forced the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar to
develop a Disaster Risk Management Policy of 2011 and the establishment
of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Commission. Every year
millions of Tanzanian Shillings are spent to respond to natural and
manmade disasters in the Islands.

Deeply concerned by the fact
that drowning has been the cause of 2.5 million preventable deaths in
the past decade and reaffirming its commitment to full implementation of
the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030, the United Nations General
Assembly passed Resolution 75/273 on Global Drowning Prevention and
decided to proclaim 25 July as World Drowning Prevention Day in April
2021. The Government, under the leadership and coordination of the
Second Vice President Office, also has planned to develop a
multi-sectoral and multi-year Drowning Prevention National Action Plan
(DP-NAP) 2023-2027.
