Drawing upon the diversity of expertise of its members, the CADRI Partnership offers a unique combination of knowledge, experience and resources to support countries implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The range of capacity development services include:

  • The facilitation of an assessment of national capacities in DRR using a multi sectoral methodology
  • A decision aid tool for prioritization of DRR capacity development actions to develop national DRR plans and strategies (global target (e) of the Sendai Framework)
  • The facilitation of access by countries to expertise, knowledge and resources within and outside the UN System to implement their national priorities
  • Knowledge management and dissemination of good practices in DRR in support of the roll out of the Words into Action guides
  • A combined offer of training modules on DRR

Governments can select from a menu of services or call upon CADRI to support a process of multi-stakeholder’s engagement (capacity assessment, prioritization, costing) leading to the design of a nationally owned DRR plan or strategy over a 12 to 18 month- period. The CADRI Partnership builds upon the in-country presence of its member organizations to support the implementation of the national strategy or plan of action.

Through the facilitation of government led country capacity assessment, and support to the development of multi sectoral plans, CADRI capacity development services lay the foundation for coherent programmatic support in DRR at country level across sectors and levels:

  • CADRI is a key enabler of the UN Plan of Action on Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience as it addresses the need for coherence and mutual re-enforcement of the UN’s resilience building efforts.
  • CADRI supports the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) by contributing to assessing national capacities for climate services at country level.
  • Finally, CADRI can also act as an enabler for global partnership initiatives such as the Global Partnership for Preparedness (GPP) and the 5-10-50 Risk Informed Development Initiative.
