The Centre for Disaster Protection was launched by the UK PM in July 2017 to strengthen resilience in developing countries through better preparedness and planning backed by risk-based financing arrangements. The Centre is funded with UK aid from the UK government.

The Centre works to change how the world prepares and pays for disasters. Identifying, planning for, and financing disasters before they strike saves lives, reduces suffering, and protects livelihoods and economies, especially for the poorest and most vulnerable communities. The Centre brings countries together with international development, humanitarian, and private sector organisations to find solutions and advocate for change. We find ways to stop disasters devastating lives by supporting countries and the international system to better manage risks. To do this, the Centre provides technical assistance, builds knowledge, catalyses innovation, and creates partnerships across the development, humanitarian, and financial sectors.

The Centre's work has never been more crucial. As the Centre evolves beyond its start-up phase, our communications efforts will be critical to the Centre's next stage of organisational growth. We are a dedicated, growing team who are committed to our values of quality, impartiality, creativity, and empowerment.

Scope of Work

The Centre's communications function cuts across all organisational goals and is a key part of delivering the Centre's strategy and strategic communications objectives which are:
- Increase understanding of best practice in disaster risk financing and how to achieve impact
- Build the profile of the Centre and its staff as impartial experts in disaster risk financing
- Support Centre thought-leadership to be internationally recognised as driving change through applied research and evidence, experimentation, and learning
- Position the Centre as a positive disrupter at the forefront of efforts to reform how the world plans and pays for disasters and tackles the growing impact of climate change and increasing cost of disasters around the world.
- Generate a perception of the Centre as a trusted, empowering, 'go to' partner, who individuals, organisations and national governments want to collaborate with

The Centre requires the support of a full-service communications agency to provide a broad range of services as we enter a new period of growth. See Terms of Reference for more information.
