In October 2016, CADRI delivered a workshop in Cairo on activating the CADRI Partnership in the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) region. Convening regional and country-level staff of member agencies, the workshop included a presentation of the CADRI methodology and tool covering the full disaster risk reduction spectrum across a wide range of sectors.

The objectives of the regional workshop were to:

  • Assess capacity development needs and resources in the MENA region;
  • Train a pool of regional experts on the CADRI approach to capacity development and the use of CADRI methodology and tool;
  • Identify the pre-requisites for the activation of the CADRI Partnership in the MENA region with a focus on countries in the pipeline, such as Jordan.
