The Asia Pacific Gateway for Disaster Risk Reduction and Development (Gateway) promotes mainstreaming of disaster risk reduction (DRR) into development planning. It is an internet based portal which provides users with a platform for information sharing, building networks, accessing technical services and promoting regional cooperation among partners working on mainstreaming DRR in Asia and the Pacific. It intends to enhance regional access to information on good practices, policy options, methods and tools, and programs on DRR, whilst serving as a regional hub that provides quick and easy access to networks and organizations doing work in disaster management. The Gateway identifies disaster management services available to governments in the region and facilitates value-added regional level analysis.
