Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience (CADRE)

Since 2011, USAID/OFDA has provided more than $1.5 million to the CADRE program, enabling USAID/OFDA and USAID/Indonesia to partner in funding projects that educate and engage communities and local officials in climate change adaptation measures and improve linkages between national-, provincial-, and district-level governments, leading to more coordinated and inclusive DRR and climate change planning. Over the past several years, USAID/OFDA funding for CADRE has supported Project Concern International (PCI), Farmer Initiatives for Ecological Literacy and Democracy (FIELD), Lutheran World Relief, Mercy Corps, and WN to improve sustainable land use, reduce disaster vulnerability, and mitigate the impact of climate change by rehabilitating mangrove forests and increasing community capacity for effective coastal land management.
