It promotes disaster awareness, the development of local capabilities, and institutionalised disaster management and mitigation policies.

Specific areas of work include risk assessment, mainstreaming DRR into development processes, urban risk management, and climate change risk management. The ADPC conducts regular regional, national, and local training courses for governments, scientists, and humanitarian policymakers alike.
