The Caribbean Disaster Risk Management (CADRIM)

Reference Centre

About us:

CADRIM Reference Centre takes the lead in building and contributing knowledge and providing services to the Red Cross network in the Caribbean, the Americas and globally; actively working towards the development of evidence, data and research that can inform leadership and recognize digital gaps and adaptation, by using evidence-based analysis and research to further amplify our advocacy and policy influence. It is the regional platform that assists Caribbean Red Cross Societies and partner organizations to investigate, analyse and develop knowledge on how to strengthen community resilience through sustainable preparedness and risk reduction activities, particularly in Small Island Developing States (SIDS).


Transforming how we work:

During the pandemic, the CADRIM Reference Centre was able to successfully improve and innovate its existing digital landscape to continue to provide its services not only to the 13 Dutch & English-Speaking Caribbean National Societies it serves, but also to IFRC units internationally. The reality is COVID-19 removed the barriers for a Caribbean based Reference Centre to offer its services globally as almost all types of activities migrated to an online space.
