Publication Overview/Description

Community Action for Disaster Response (CADRE) is part of the Program for Enhancement of Emergency Response (PEER) - a regional training program initiated in 1998 by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) to strengthen disaster response capacities in Asia.

CADRE is a new initiative from PEER, focusing on developing community-based responders, equipped
with basic skills to respond to a disaster in their community. CADRE is being implemented in the
nine Asian countries of PEER, with supplemental support from the American Red Cross (ARC).

CADRE is developing skills at the local level, where they’re needed most.

CADRE is running from 2009-2014.
