About Asian Preparedness Partnership

The Asian Preparedness Partnership (APP), established by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), is a unique multi-stakeholder regional partnership that includes countries from South and South-East Asia to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (the foundation) and United States Agency for International Development Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID BHA), the partnership strives to improve inter-organizational coordination and dialogue between governments, local humanitarian organization networks, and the private sector for enhancing capacities through partnerships, knowledge resources, training and networking opportunities.
