Partners for Resilience

The Partners for Resilience (PfR) is an alliance led by the Netherlands Red Cross, CARE Netherlands, Cordaid, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and Wetlands International. In the Philippines the PfR alliance is working in the northern regions of the Cordilleras and Mountain Province, urban Metro Manila, and rural northern Mindanao. PfR strategies include strengthening emergency response, climate change adaptation, improving ecosystems and water management, small mitigation projects, and documenting traditional knowledge on disaster risk reduction. The programs of PfR focus on the central role of resilience as the way to deal effectively with disasters. This means they use an integrated approach to mitigate disaster risk and enhance livelihoods, particularly by addressing climate change and ecosystem management and restoration.
