Engaging the private sector in disaster preparedness, response and recovery

Connecting Business initiative

Connecting Business initiative (CBi) is a demand driven multi-stakeholder initiative transforming the way business engages before, during and after natural and manmade disasters and humanitarian crises to create more resilient communities, increase local capacity and alleviate human suffering. Operational and technical support is provided by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
