Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), the leading training re-source in the region continues to address the training needs and capac-ity development challenges in disaster management in the region and

beyond. Since its inception in 1986, ADPC has been pursuing its mis-sions to mitigate the impact of disasters on communities and countriesin Asia through raising awareness, enhancing knowledge and skillsand facilitating exchange of information and expertise. Throughoutthe years, over 6000 ADPC alumni have completed ADPC trainingcourses and went on to play leading and signifcant roles in disaster risk reduction initiatives and interventions.

ADPC, through its multi-disciplinary approach has been designingtraining curricula and conducting courses in a wide range of disaster management disciplines. To meet new needs and challenges posed

by disasters, ADPC has been paving the way in developing training

courses in emerging and topical disaster risk reduction areas. It has been ADPC’s ongoing and continued endeavor in the course improve-ment process that has led to reviews and changes in topics and struc-tures.

Drawing on its body of knowledge and expertise, ADPC has beendesigning and conducting specialized program-based and customizednational training courses in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, China, Cambo-dia, East Timor, Fiji Islands, India, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Lao PDR,Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thai-

land, Vietnam at the request of governments and donors. ADPC offers bespoke courses to promote disaster risk reduction through its aca-demic and partner institutions.

Additionally, ADPC conducts organizational developmental courses,study tours, simulation exercises and workshops on a range of topics.
