ARC Strategic Framework

The ARC Group Strategy 2020 – 2024 is built around the organisation’s key mandate of assisting AU Member States improve their capacities to plan, prepare for and respond to extreme weather events and natural disasters effectively. Designed to set the Group on a new trajectory, the refreshed strategy seeks to align ARC’s programmes with national, regional and continental development agendas and build robust natural disaster resilience on the African Continent.
ARC’s three strategic objectives of Innovate, Strengthen and Grow will steer the organisation towards its goals and ensure the continent’s Disaster Risk Management efforts protect the lives and livelihoods of populations at risk. Initiatives prioritised for each strategic objective can be summarised as follows:
