This project supports the Red Cross Society Central African Republic (CRCA) to enhance their emergency response capacity in selected regions. The country is prone to natural (climate) disasters and man-made disasters (conflict). CRCA is active in national, regional and local disaster response and has a DM unit but has received little support on RP whereas capacity building is needed to ensure nationwide coverage. Impact of core RP activities can be high, considering the small, but highly dedicated National Society. Central African Republic (CAR)
