Partners for Resilience

The Partners for Resilience (PfR) is an alliance of the Netherlands Red Cross (lead agency), CARE Netherlands, Cordaid, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and Wetlands International. The PfR aim to reduce the impact of natural hazards on the livelihoods of around 400,000 vulnerable people worldwide.

Partners for Resilience

Partners for Resilience wants to make communities more resilient with these funds. Because, the more resilient a society is, the less vulnerable it becomes. Human suffering, deterioration of ecosystems and material damage may thus be prevented. This is also a way of investing in a future with less need for emergency relief.

Partners for Resilience strives to help and support 750.000 to 1.000.000 people in 9 countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Uganda, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Indonesia, the Philippines and India. These countries are especially vulnerable to natural disasters related to climate change and/or the deterioration of ecosystems.

The alliance wants to make people less vulnerable by implementing various intervention strategies:

  • Stimulating sustainable economic developments
  • Strengthening the capacity of local organisations and local authorities, among other things by making a risk assessment, natural disaster risk management plans and warning systems
  • Advocacy and stimulation of knowledge sharing between governments, civil society, knowledge institutes and the private sector in the field of natural disaster reduction and climate adaptation.
