Mission

The Asian Disaster Reduction & Response Network (ADRRN) is a network of national civil society organizations across the Asia- Pacific region. Over the years, ADRRN’s work has
focussed around local leaders, accountability and innovation – the very issues currently being championed in the sector globally.

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’.

Disaster Reduction Goal

ADRRN’s forward-looking vision focuses on transforming Asia’s resilience, moving from the most vulnerable to the most resilient region. It aims to achieve this goal by 2030 and our vision paves the way towards this. For over the years, ADRRN’s work has focussed around localization, accountability and innovation – the very issues currently being championed in the sector globally.

ADRRN's 2020 strategic objectives are:
1. Continue to be a leading representative platform with increased outreach involving larger number of NGOs and local CSOs in the region.

2. Facilitate effective implementation of global frameworks at the national and local level, and facilitate disaster risk governance and enhance accountability.

3. Enhancing range of knowledge and practice on resilience.
