Mission

Centre for Disaster Risk and Crisis Reduction (CDRCR) is a non-governmental, not for profit organization established in Nigeria in year 2005 and got incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in August, 2011 with the mandate to carry out activities tailored towards disaster reduction and safety promotion in Nigerian communities. It came into existence as a result of a dire need of an indigenous organization which will harness local, national and foreign resources to reduce risks and manage disasters in Nigeria having in mind the increasing profile of both natural and human induced disasters in the country.
CDRCR since inception has been able to make tremendous impacts in Nigerian communities in her thematic areas of operation. CDRCR has working relationship with National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA South West Zone), State Emergency Management Agencies (SEMAs in the South West), Red Cross Society of Nigeria, Ministry of Environment in South Western States and Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). CDRCR is also a network member of West Africa Network for Peacebuilding, Nigeria (WANEP-Nigeria), Global Network of Civil Society Organiztion on Disaster Risk Reductions (GNDR), Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergency (INEE) and membership of many other international organizations.
CDRCR operates through her National Secretariat in Ibadan, with a national spread but has a stronghold in the South West Zone. CDRCR under the chairmanship of Dr. Taiye Ademola Alabi JP is blessed with talented personnel with expertise in Disaster Risk Management, School Safety Management, Climate Change Adaptation and Environmental Management, Health Related Issues, Conflict Resolution and Peace building etc. CDRCR operates on the field through her team of trained volunteers numbering over 200 spread across the country. It should be emphasized that ‘gender’ is a cross cutting issue in all our focus areas.
