The Caribbean Disaster Risk Management (CADRIM)

Reference Centre

About us:

The CADRIM Reference Centre is at the forefront of knowledge creation and service provision to the Red Cross network across the Caribbean, the Americas, and worldwide. It is committed to actively advancing the generation of evidence-driven data that informs leadership decisions and identifies digital gaps and adaptation strategies. Utilizing evidence-based analysis and research, we strive to enhance our advocacy and policy impact. As the regional hub, CADRIM Reference Centre plays a pivotal role in supporting Caribbean Red Cross Societies and partner organizations in investigating, analyzing, and cultivating knowledge on strengthening community resilience through sustainable preparedness and risk reduction activities, with a particular focus on 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.
