Founded in 2001, CARDI (the Consortium for Assistance and Recovery towards Development in Indonesia) is a coalition of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Dutch refugee foundation Stichting Vluchteling (SV) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC). CARDI’s clients are Indonesians affected by poverty, conflict and natural disaster in the provinces of Aceh, Yogyakarta, Central Java, Central Sulawesi, Maluku and North Maluku. By investing in Economic Development, Health and Children and Youth Initiatives, CARDI’s support provides resources that enable Indonesians to articulate their needs, advocate for change and affect improvements in their lives through social and economic entrepreneurship. CARDI also equips its clients with the ability to recover from disasters and conflicts, and prevent the reoccurrence of future conflicts, through Disaster Response and Mitigation programming. Four strategic, cross-cutting approaches—Advocacy, Rights, Good Governance and Gender—are evident in all CARDI programs, and ensure that change is both durable and sustainable. While still addressing basic needs for displaced populations and returnees, CARDI increasingly provides transitional, post-conflict recovery and development programs.
