Partners are WWF, IUCN, CARE, the ADPC and the Laboratory of International Environment and Disaster Management (IEDM) at Kyoto University. The group is supported by the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) and UNEP.

DEWGA will seek to be part of the proposed expanded ISDR Asia Partnership and of the UNEP-led ISDR Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction to ensure that the initiative is connected to other disaster reduction partnerships in the region and that its activities are integrated in the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005 - 2015.
