Noah’s Ark Project

CNDR Noah's Ark Project (CNAP) is a cutting-edge, fast and tested program on capacity building, institutionalization and empowerment in disaster risk reduction management (DRRM) by local government units (LGUs) and communities. CNDR delivers the program in a record time of six months. A more intensive program covering resilience may be delivered in two phases for a total of 12 months.

The goal of CNDR Noah's Ark Project is to empower local communities and local government units in the quickest time possible to reduce their hazard specific risks down to "zero casualty" and empower them to secure the strategic safety and well being of families in affected communities.
