ADPC's strength lies in networking and coordinating with partners from government line agencies at the national and sub-national levels to community members. Over the past nearly 30 years, ADPC has worked closely with regional cooperation mechanisms such as Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SOPAC), and the Mekong River Commission (MRC). ADPC's partners also include UN agencies, the World Bank and Asian Development Bank and many multi- and bilateral donor agencies.
ADPC works hand-in-hand with a diverse range of partners from the United Nations to government agencies and line-ministries, multi- and bilateral donors, community-based organizations, universities, technical agencies and international non-governmental agencies. As disaster preparedness and risk reduction becomes more of an interest with corporations in the region, ADPC is actively engaging the private sector for joint project implementation.
One of ADPC's strengths is its ability to successfully work together with stakeholders from the international to community level. Many of ADPC's established partners have worked together with the organization since its inception in 1986. ADPC's partners benefit from regional alliances with others that share a commitment to reducing disaster risk in Asia-Pacific through knowledge-sharing and bringing together institutions worldwide.
ADPC's approach to working together with partners varies from project to project. Our tailor-made approach allows flexibility and ensures that our work is as results-driven as possible.
ADPC receives support from a wide range of its partners. These currently include:
