Our story

Since its creation in 2007, the CADRI Partnership has significantly evolved from a training programme to a flexible multi-partner facility that supports countries to design and implement risk-informed capacity development approaches.

Over the past decade, we expanded our membership and consolidated our offer of services to countries. Founded by three UN organizations – OCHA, UNDP and UNDRR – the CADRI Partnership regrouped 16 organizations during our second implementation phase from 2014 to 2018. For the third implementation phase from 2019 to 2023, we represent 20 organizations working together in delivering an ambitious joint offer of services to countries that are most vulnerable to the impact of climate change and disasters.

Under this new phase we are broadening our offer of capacity development services to include climate change adaptation in addition to disaster risk reduction. We integrate conflict-sensitivity and gender-responsiveness in our approach to capacity development. We are scaling up our services at regional level to respond to increasing country demand for capacity development support.
