About Cabaret

CABARET (CApacity Building in Asia for Resilience EducaTion) is funded by the European Union, under the Erasmus + programme, to foster regional cooperation for more effective multi-hazard early warning and increased disaster resilience among coastal communities.The project is inspired by the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, agreed by UN member states in 2015. It includes a strong call for higher education to support the understanding of disaster risk and promote risk-informed decisions and risk sensitive planning from the local to the global levels. It also calls for the coordination of existing networks and scientific research institutions at all levels and all regions. The goal is to strengthen the evidence-base in support of the implementation of the new framework.

IHCantabria is joined by a group of experts from a consortium of 14 European and Asian higher education institutions from Bulgaria, Indonesia, Latvia, the Maldives, Malta, Myanmar, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and the United Kingdom that hosts the University of Huddersfield’s Global Disaster Resilience Centre, leading partner of CABARET project.The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO), the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center and the Federation of Sri Lankan Local Government Authorities are Associate Partners of the project, and will help to promote the benefits across Asia and beyond.
