WHO WE ARE

The Southeast & Caribbean Disaster Resilience Partnership (SCDRP) is a diverse and multi-disciplinary affiliation of public, private, and non-profit organizations that strengthens the ability of the region's coastal communities, economies, and environment to recover from the next coastal storm.

 

The Partnership connects disaster recovery practitioners from public, private, and non-profit backgrounds and provides a platform for training, resources, and relationships that coastal communities need to bounce back. The SCDRP is led by an Advisory Board and staffed by a Program Assistant. 

JOIN OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS

Participating in our monthly meetings is free of charge and held virtually. We want to be sure to remain open to everyone who's interested in resilience and climate adaptation.
