Programs

Business Continuity

CNDR focuses on building capacities of its members to come up and implement their business continuity plans.

The business continuity program aims to:

1. Provide an understanding of the nature of BCP practice in the Philippines.

2. Conduct activities that led to adoption and formulation of BCP among its members.

3. For CNDR to be recognized by private sector as a resource center on BCP.

Community-Based Disaster Risk Management

Soliciting private sector’s support for building the capacities and reducing vulnerabilities of communities is one of CNDR’s core advocacy. CNDR is currently implementing two CBDRM projects:

1. NOAH’S ARK PROJECT

Building Noah’s Ark in Flood-Prone Communities is a community-based flood preparedness project initiated by the OurLighthouse Alliance. Noah’s Ark aims to find a safe spot in a high-risk area and develop it into an evacuation center where people will feel safe and secure, and develop capacities of vulnerable communities to prepare for flooding.

2. PARTNERS FOR RESILIENCE

Partners for Resilience is a five-year program developed by five Netherlands-based organization (CARE, Cordaid, Wetlands International, Netherlands Red Cross, and RC Climate Centre) which “aims to integrate community-based ecological, humanitarian and development approaches to address the increased risk of hazards, climate change and environment degradation” (Source: PfR brochure).

EMERGENCY RESPONSE

CNDR’s ER Program adheres to the Sphere Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response, and centers on resource mobilization while directing the efforts toward the most-affected, least-served disaster-stricken communities. The program aims to mobilize CNDR members to support and adopt emergency response initiatives for affected communities.
