Know more about Community Disaster Resource Network (CDRN)
India is vulnerable to disasters be it floods, storms, droughts, cyclones, earthquakes, snowfall or avalanches. The scale and intensity of disasters has and is increasing over the years. The present lack of an organized information system for disaster response to match needs at District, State, andNational levels with an integration of Corporates, Government and Relief agencies is required. Thus the need of the hour is to develop a supply chain management system that would connect the local Needs with available resources i.e., human, financial or products.

This is to work towards getting The Right Aid to the Right People at the Right Time™

Community Disaster Resource Network (CDRN) is a web based supply chain management system that helps Relief agencies, Response agencies and Local governments access and feed in real time information on products and services required for emergency humanitarian relief. Thereby enabling an efficient logistics, administrative and financial resources based emergency preparedness, response and rehabilitation tool.

Facilitating an efficient real time supply chain management system for effective deployment of resources - financial, material, volunteers and skilled professionals for preparedness, response and rehabilitation for times of emergencies.
