CADRI Support

In June 2014 CADRI delivered a regional workshop on capacity development for disaster risk reduction in West Africa. The workshop was attended by 24 participants from 8 countries (Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Chad, CAR, Congo-Brazzaville, Niger and Mali). The Regional Office was represented by 10 participants, and 7 different UN agencies were present, as well as 2 NGOs and the IFRC.

The training workshop offered by CADRI aimed both to strengthen existing member agencies’ technical capacities at the regional and country levels, and to foster the coherence of UN programming in support of the governments’ DRR priorities. In the context of an increasing number of requests for capacity development support provided by UN agencies jointly using the CADRI methodology, ensuring capacity development of member agencies’ staff at regional level was identified as a pri-ority for the programme.
