CARE Netherlands has started working on a ‘Climate-Proof Disaster Risk Reduction’ programme of the Dutch alliance Partners for Resilience, which is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The alliance consists of five Dutch NGO’s, namely the Netherlands Red Cross, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, Cordaid, Wetlands International and CARE Netherlands.

 

Partners for Resilience aim to reduce the impact of natural hazards on the livelihoods of community members in nine countries: Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mali, Nicaragua, the Philippines and Uganda.

 

The five-partner organizations will collaborate on the intersection of Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Change Adaptation and Ecosystem Management and Restoration, through three strategic intervention areas: strengthening community resilience, civil society capacity building and policy dialogue at all levels.
