Working in Asia often means being in the eye of the storm — literally. The region is prone to earthquakes, typhoons and other natural disasters that can threaten already fragile political and economic environments.
Humanitarian aid is a cornerstone of RI’s role in Asia. We also partner with communities to address long-term challenges related to health, education, economic opportunity, rural development and the establishment of robust civil societies. Some of our signature programs connect farmers to markets, ensure biodiversity and reduce zoonotic disease.
