The Avoidable Deaths Network (ADN) is a diverse, dynamic, inclusive and innovative global membership network dedicated to avoiding human deaths from natural hazards, naturally triggered technological hazards and human-made disasters in low- and middle-income countries.
The ADN’s mission is: to provide a dynamic forum for experts, practitioners, researchers and organisational partners to identify and promote theoretical and practical solutions to reducing avoidable deaths.
The ADN is led by the Universities of Leicester and Kansai. The ADN was founded by Dr. Nibedita S. Ray-Bennett (Associate Professor in Risk Management, University of Leicester) and Dr. Hideyuki Shiroshita (Associate Professor in Disaster Education, Kansai University) in 2018, and was officially launched at the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GADRI) in Kyoto on the 12th of March 2019.
ADN India will continue to add additional layers of analysis to extrapolate and understand the challenges and opportunities to achieve ZCAAC in Odisha, with a strong scope to upscale ZCAAC nationally and globally. ADN India has launched on 11th September 2019 by Hon’ble Speaker - Odisha State Legislative Assembly, Government of Odisha.
The Secretariat for Avoidable Deaths Network (ADN – India) is hosted by Orissa State Volunteers and Social Workers Association. OSVSWA has also been nominated to host the ‘Research Hub’ of Avoidable Deaths Network (University of Leicester, UK)
