ADRRN Strategy 2030: A Resilience Movement for Asia


The Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN) is a network of civil society organizations in the Asia region currently spanning Afghanistan to Indonesia. It was established in 2001 with the vision of “Safe Community Environments and Disaster Resilient Societies” and the recent strategy document 2016-2020 called for “Transforming Asia to be the Most Resilient Region by 2030”. Significant transformation of resilience in the region is still required given its status of being the most disaster-prone region in the world.

ADRRN continues to play a key role in the Asian humanitarian ecosystem, through the work of its members, strategic partners and wider stakeholder network. Target-2030, articulated in the 2016-2020 strategy, remains relevant to guide this 2021-2030 strategy – for “ADRRN to strive to work towards transforming Asia as the most disaster-prone region to being the most resilient region through various initiatives and activities of CSOs by 2030”.

The strategic vision for 2021-2030 will build on the good work that continues to be done, but reflecting the very changed world and more complex, multi-dimensional humanitarian challenges in the region, and globally, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, more severe climate events and a global economic downturn – all of which will impact during this strategic period.
