CABRI co-hosted an additional event on 19 August 2011 in Kigali, Rwanda, with the African Risk Capacity (ARC). The ARC is a project of the African Union that is intended to create an African-owned, AU-led, stand-alone financial entity that would provide participating AU member states with immediate resources in the event of a natural disaster.
