The North American Humanitarian Response Initiative (NAHRI) advances efforts to improve the effectiveness of cross-border response to disaster, including catastrophic disasters, in North America. NAHRI is coordinated and implemented by the American Red Cross in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross and Mexican Red Cross.

The main goal of NAHRI for the duration of this phase of the project from June 2018 to March 2019 is to establish a humanitarian diplomatic initiative for North American aimed at strengthening cross-border response to all hazards.
