Our network is comprised of disaster risk management experts, Indigenous communities, scholars and public users from countries throughout the Region of the Americas and the Caribbean. By connecting individuals and communities across regional divides and creating a one-stop-shop for information, the network facilitates and improves cross-cultural sharing and integration of Indigenous knowledge and disaster risk reduction knowledge.

The network is geographically organized by region and consists of four sub-networks. Each individual sub-network listed below consists of institutions, agencies, committees and communities that actively contribute and participate in the network. For more information on regional representatives, please contact us with the information provided on the Contact Us page.

  • The Caribbean

  • Central America and Mexico

  • The United States (including Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands) and Canada
