Collaborations & Parternships


International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies: CRED and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) have been partners since their collaboration on the World Disaster Report (WDR) in 1993, in which CRED contributed by preparing the statistical data tables and analyses on an annual basis. Using the OFDA/CRED EM-DAT database, CRED provided annual key trends and statistics on natural and technological disasters, including the number of events, number of killed, as well as affected and estimated damages.

Secretariat for the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction: CRED and UN-ISDR have been partners since 2003, and, using the EM-DAT database, have collaborated on Annual Press Conferences, providing statistical and analytical support for the UNISDR, contributing to various publications, and creating an interlink between both website for dynamic display of products based on EM-DAT (ie. country profiles).

U.S. Agency for International Development: CRED and the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) of the US Agency for International Development Development (USAID) have enjoyed a close collaboration since 1999. Their joint aim was to complete the EM-DAT database and validate its content. Together, they decided to create a database-specific website with free access in order to provide users with a reliable source of disaster-data covering the entire globe. Since 1999, OFDA has contributed to the maintenance and enhancement of the EM-DAT database and services, as well as the development of other related activities, such as the Regional Disaster Information System (RE-DAT) and a Disaster Database Portal.
