Disaster Management Mitigation @ ADRRN

Welcome to the Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN).

Our main aim is to promote coordination, information sharing and collaboration among NGOs and other stakeholders for effective and efficient disaster reduction and response in the Asia-Pacific region.

Asia, the most disaster prone continent in the world experienced more than half of the world's major disasters in the last half century. As a result, economies and the very fabric of human societies are affected, lives are lost and nations continue to struggle in a bid to recover.

Alarmingly, these disasters are on a rising trend as a result of many factors including global climate change, rapid and unplanned urbanization, environmental degradation and depletion of water resources. As a result, there is a feverish intensification of initiatives to address disaster reduction, response and the development of total disaster risk management.

Multilevel networking and collaborations have increased among stakeholders of whom NGOs feature prominently apart from governments and international organizations. NGOs play an undeniably critical role - their actions range between humanitarian aid to disaster preparedness to recovery and rehabilitation.

The Asian Disaster Reduction & Response Network (ADRRN) is a network consists of 34 national NGOs from 16 countries across the Asia-Pacific region. With a strong footprint in the region, the network members are constantly engaged with local communities strengthening their ability to combat disasters, providing humanitarian aid like food, water, shelter and health care, protecting critical facilities like schools and hospitals, creating awareness, advocating for policy changes and improving the capacity of community based organizations. The secretariat is based out of kuala lumpur, Malaysia.
