Capacity Building Partnerships

Capacity Building Partnerships are a major focus of DIRAJ and form the core of our efforts in member development – they are responsible for the positioning, promotion and development of the industry or sector they represent. We have various Stakeholder Groups driven by DIRAJ. Capacity Building Partnerships also conduct industry research and formulate strategy and policy for dissemination to the DIRAJ Board, DIRAJ members, Government, and the broader DRR community.

DIRAJ supports the partnerships by providing a framework for operation, linkage with other DIRAJ partners and distribution of outcomes. Where applicable, DIRAJ also provides administrative and research support.
