Partners for Resilience

    Cordaid, together with the Netherlands Red Cross, Red Cross Climate Centre, CARE Netherlands and Wetlands International, forms a consortium which implemented 45 projects in 9 countries in the period 2011 – 2015. The Partners for Resilience alliance is part of the Dutch Delegation to Sendai, which is headed by Minister Ploumen of Trade and Development Cooperation of The Netherlands.

    The innovative cooperation in the Partners for Resilience alliance to work on resilience through integrating disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation and ecosystem management and restoration is unique in the world. Jointly we contribute to sustainable, disaster and climate proof development, which is firmly rooted at community level, adapted to the local situation and embedded in the local government structures. Therefore it is a sustainable approach.

    Based on this experience, the Partners for Resilience alliance is selected to form a Strategic Partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the period 2015 – 2020.

    Cordaid delegates are invited as speakers in different side events of the WCDRR.
