GNDR member, the Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN) is one of the organisers of the campaign On the Road to Sendai.  The campaign bridges the gap between civil society and world leaders; getting communities to emphasise what they want to see in the new framework. It looks at the success stories of HFA 1 with messages of what worked best in preventing, reducing and bouncing back stronger from disasters. It also attempts to de-mystify and widely circulate the concepts in HFA 2 to improve understanding primarily among the development sector, as well as the broader public.
