ADRRN membership is open to national NGOs with headquarter in Asia-Pacific region and working in the field of climate change adaptation and disaster reduction and response. The network has emerged as an important point of reference for CSO engagement for the international humanitarian community and is an entry-point to the wider civil society in the region.
ADRRN's bridging role could involve connecting local and international actors to learn more about each other’s ways of working and building long-term associations between organizations. More formally, it involves facilitating coordination between national networks and international actors.
ADRRN also offers assistance to international players in vetting and certifying local NGOs to help them identify suitable partners. It brings concerns of local CSOs to the attention of international humanitarian actors. It also plays a part in capacity building; training CSOs on the workings of international humanitarian agencies and familiarizing international organizations with the local context and challenges.
