CAPRA (Probabilistic Risk Assessment)

The CAPRA (Probabilistic Risk Assessment) Program is an initiative that aims to strengthen the institutional capacity for assessing, understanding and communicating disaster risk, with the ultimate goal of integrating disaster risk information into development policies and programs. Under the CAPRA Program, government institutions and other agencies partner with The World Bank to address specific development challenges and meet disaster risk information needs through hands-on practical training and other complementary services.

The CAPRA initiative started in January 2008, as a partnership between the Center for Coordination of Natural Disaster Prevention in Central America (CEPREDENAC), the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN ISDR), the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and The World Bank as a means to raise awareness among client countries in Central America by providing them with a set of tools that would let them better understand the risk of adverse natural events.

The CAPRA Program is supported by the Spanish Fund for Latin America and the Caribbean (SFLAC), the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Australian Government, and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR).
