ADRRN has developed and promoted partnerships among its members to implement a wide range of projects on strengthening and enhancing disaster management capacities of NGOs and local communities in Asia. These activities were made possible through the exchange of expertise as well as experience and knowledge sharing among its members.
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. 


Over the years, ADRRN's work has focussed around local leaders, accountability and innovation – the very issues currently being championed in the sector globally.


In this way, ADRRN is aptly and uniquely positioned to take on the challenges and leverage the opportunities of a changing humanitarian and development landscape.

Initial ideas for ground action in the region and beyond include the variety of activities below. These are based on the outcomes of the various global frameworks, initiatives taken in the past, experience gained and the existing strength of the network to achieve the 2020 Strategic Objectives.
