About Us

The Asian Disaster Reduction & Response Network (ADRRN) is a network of national civil society organizations across the Asia- Pacific region.

Born in 2002 at a meeting of Asian CSOs in Kobe, Japan, ADRRN has rapidly evolved with
reaching across 21 countries from an awareness-raising network to a prominent regional voice in advocacy and capacity building. Today it is known as the ‘Civil Society Voice of Asia’.

ADRRN exemplifies the able spirit of southern leadership, the effectiveness of regional collaboration and the power of civil society. It puts local people at the centre of its work.
