The Centre for Disaster Protection finds better ways to stop disasters devastating lives and economies, by supporting countries to better manage disaster risk. It provides assistance to countries to move from reaction to readiness, so they can deliver faster, more cost-effective help for the most vulnerable people when disasters occur.

The Centre is funded by UK Aid through the Prosperity Fund, a cross-governmental initiative of the UK Government which contributes to the achievement of the 2015 UK Aid strategy and the Sustainable Development Goals through addressing barriers to growth. The funding is managed by the UK Department for International Development.
