CADAN is the 
Culture and Disaster 
Action Network 

We are a growing group of social scientists and practitioners devoted to helping disaster professionals address that first question: Who Lives Here? 

The mission of CADAN is to take action that can build and integrate cultural comprehension into the work of disaster risk reduction and disaster recovery. The network also operates as a point of contact for disaster professionals in government, NGOs and non-profits, and the private sector to connect with researchers and educators from academic institutions. CADAN members are available to float ideas, identify collaborators, and create partnerships.
