CADRI is an inter-agency initiative whose mission is to expand existing efforts to develop robust and sustainable capacity for disaster risk reduction worldwide. We cooperate with national and local governments, UN entities, NGOs and other international organizations to advance the five priorities of the Hyogo Framework for Action.
How we help
We are the central resource for the latest knowledge and best practice in capacity development for disaster risk reduction: the place to come for advice, materials and expertise.
The CADRI team positively welcomes requests for information or other kinds of support – please contact us directly to find out how we can help you.
CADRI responds to specific requests and we recognize each situation as unique. Working in partnership with local actors and organizations, we build upon existing resources to strengthen capacity for disaster risk reduction in individual regions and countries.
We offer specific strategic, programme and technical advice – tailored to each situation – at global, regional and national levels.
We encourage individual countries, organizations and practitioners within the DRR community to generate and share with each other experience, know-how and good practice.
We map and make available tools and resources worldwide, and develop new materials wherever they are needed.
Our training covers all aspects of DRR – how to prepare, respond and recover – and how to incorporate DRR within overall development.
