This is an alliance of the Netherlands Red Cross (lead agency), CARE Netherlands, Cordaid, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and Wetlands International.
The name comes from the fundamental belief on the central role of resilience as a way to effectively deal with disasters by the five partners. An integrated approach is therefore necessary to mitigate disaster risk and enhance livelihoods, particularly by addressing climate change and ecosystem management and restoration.
The programme is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign AffairsProject Website
