The Capacity for Disaster Reduction Initiative (CADRI) is a global partnership composed of 16 UN and non-UN organizations: FAO, OCHA, UNDP, UNICEF, WFP, WHO, GNDR, IFRC, IOM, OECD, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNITAR, UNOPS, WMO, and WB/GFDRR. CADRI draws upon the diversity of expertise of its members to offers a unique combination of knowledge, experience and resources to support countries implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The CADRI Partnership works towards strengthening countries’ capacities to prevent, manage and recover from the impact of disasters. The objective of the CADRI Partnership is to support the identification of critical capacity gaps at country level in view of prevailing risks and the articulation of coherent UN System and other stakeholder’s interventions to address those capacity gaps.
The CADRI Partnership proposes a range of capacity development services including a methodology for assessing national capacities in DRR, the facilitation of multi-stakeholders’ engagement to develop national plans and strategies for DRR, the provision of technical assistance to implement selected capacity development activities and the delivery of training modules. The CADRI capacity development approach has been adapted and applied in 30 countries. In support of the ambition of the Sendai Framework and the Sustainable Development Goals, the Partnership is scaling up its support to respond to increasing country demands.
