A. About Asian Disaster Preparedness Center
Established in 1986, ADPC is a regional international organization with a vision to reducing disaster and climate risk impacts on communities and countries in Asia and the Pacific. ADPC works with governments across 26 countries through strategic partnerships to mainstream disaster and climate risk into development policies for risk reduction systems, investment decisions, and climate change adaptation actions. In addition to its headquarter in Bangkok, ADPC currently has offices/representation in 11 countries. ADPC, over the last 3 decades, has established strong collaborative partnership with national focal agencies on DRR, Climate Change and key sectoral ministries and stakeholders at all levels across Asia, through joint-projects, technical assistance, capacity building, and regional policy dialogues. More details on ADPC and its programs can be found at www.adpc.net
Disasters take a huge toll on the development agenda of SAR countries. Between 2000 and 2017, disasters in South Asia incurred estimated damages of US$ 149.27 billion. Public expenditure is under stress by the repeated need to reallocate capital budgets away from long term development planning and towards reconstruction activities in post-disaster environments. For example, since 2005, Pakistan has suffered losses on the order of US$ 16 billion due to natural disasters. In Bangladesh, 2007 Cyclone Sidr resulted in damages and losses of US$1.7 billion, or 2.6 per cent of GDP.
To increase resilience and achieve climate commitments, there is a need for a transformational shift towards policies and institutions that enable climate resilient investments. Investing in more resilient infrastructure is both profitable and urgent as disruptions are extremely costly for governments, households and private sector and large ongoing investments in infrastructure assets will have long-lasting repercussions as poor maintenance and natural disasters result in a vulnerable stock.
With the financial support from the World Bank Group, ADPC is implementing a five-years project, titled “Climate Adaptation and Resilience Project for South Asia” (CARE). The project aims to create an enabling environment for climate resilience policies and investments across South Asia. This objective will be achieved through enhanced regional cooperation and knowledge exchange for climate resilience and adaptation and mainstreaming of resilience and adaptation in national policies, plans and investments.
ADPC intends to hire a Knowledge Management (KM) Officer to help coordinate and manage KM-related activities for the CARE for South Asia project and also for other projects (both current and the future) under the Risk Governance Department.

S/he will also develop content for the website with support and advice from technical teams.
