Its influence and reach is considerably enhanced through collaboration with national-level networks, global networks, regional multilateral stakeholders and UN agencies.

ADRRN strikes a balance between informality and a strong effective governance system. Regular election proceedings and a functional secretariat serve as a strong backbone to our work.

Executive Committee

What we do

The ADRRN Executive Committee represents a wide-range of leaders from various network members who directs, lead, advise and move the resilience agenda forward within and beyond the network across the Asia-Pacific region and globally.

“ADRRN served and will continue to serve, as a vehicle of ensuring local voices and local talents are reflected in collective humanitarian and disaster risk reduction efforts. With so much emphasis on local stakeholders and local action, ADRRN will strive to be a true catalyst to make this happen.”
