En 2018 Fundahrse se convirtió en miembro de ARISE con el objetivo de apoyar en las empresas miembros en la gestión de riesgos y resiliencia.
En el contexto de la aplicación del Marco de Sendai para la Reducción del Riesgo de Desastres, se ha establecido la Alianza de la UNDRR y el Sector Privado para Inversiones Sensibles al Riesgo (ARISE).
El propósito general de ARISE es crear sociedades resilientes al riesgo al energizar al sector privado en colaboración con el sector público y otros actores, para lograr las metas del Marco de Sendai para la Reducción del Riesgo de Desastres. ARISE aumentará la cantidad de organizaciones del sector privado y de otros actores que participan para apoyar la aplicación del Marco de Sendai. Asimismo, ARISE permitirá que el sector privado ejecute proyectos e iniciativas tangibles que generen resultados esenciales para lograr el resultado y los objetivos del Marco de Sendai.
Cuenta con 127 miembros (Empresas, ONG, fundaciones empresariales y gremiales/Companies, NGOs, business and trade foundations).
