The VUSSC Boot Camp 4 (11th - 28th November 2007)is currently being held at the National University of Samoa on the beautiful island town of Apia, Western Samoa.

The theme for this Boot Camp is 'Introduction to Disaster Management'. A course outline addressing disaster management in VUSSC countries was drawn up by five selected team leaders prior to the boot camp.

There are a total of 24 participants in attendance from 13 small states of the Commonwealth (Belize, Jamaica, Lesotho, Mauritius, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Seychelles, The Bahamas, The Gambia, The Maldives, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu and Vanuatu). There are also 2 resource people and 3 representatives from the COL.

The participants are divided into five groups and are tasked with writing three units each to complete the course on 'Introduction to Disaster Management'.
