The Averted Disaster Award (ADA) is a new global prize celebration successful disaster mitigation interventions that are made invisible by the very nature of their success. In the world of Disaster Risk Management (DRM), success means ‘nothing happens’ and as a result can cause policy makers and society at large to under value the importance of proactive intervention. ADA recognizes the outstanding work of those who invest in measures that keep our communities and world safe. Launched at #URAsia 2021, ADA identifies and receives applications from individuals, project teams and organizations of all sizes, regions and industries whose successful DRM interventions are made invisible by one or more of the following. Nominations close on March 15, 2022. Learn more
