Global Disaster Preparedness Center http://www.preparecenter.org/

The American Red Cross (ARC) and the International Federation Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) have established the Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) as a reference center to support innovation and learning in disaster preparedness. All over the world, the Red Cross and Red Crescent (RC/RC) network is striving to help communities prepare for disasters. In the face of global trends, Red Cross and Red Crescent national societies must develop additional capacity and resources to effectively meet changing needs. To further this mission, the GDPC established the ResilientResearch Program.
