World Vision in the Asia Pacific

 

 

As the world’s most disaster-prone region, Asia Pacific accounts for the highest number of most vulnerable children at risk of climate vulnerabilities and hunger. For over 70 years, World Vision in the Asia Pacific region has been working with children, their families, their communities, governments, donors, partners and faith leaders, to strengthen disaster resilience.

Across the world, World Vision contributes to restoring the environment and reversing climate trends. We aim for grassroots impact and sustainability by catalysing community-led and child-led solutions to systematically and progressively secure safety, livelihoods, and food availability for those susceptible to exacerbated disaster-induced inequalities.

Amplifying voices from the communities through regional and global advocacy spaces, such as the Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, permits us to leverage best practices and accelerate sustainable development for all, especially the most vulnerable children.
