The purpose of the PA International Foundation is to bring together science, experience, and information to establish effective forms of local, regional, or global cooperation and exchange. On that basis the Foundation does not hesitate to act, on the ground, where needed and where it can.

PA International has been involved in reconstruction efforts for 8 major earthquakes and 4 tsunamis. Through its experiences and networks around the world PA is able to not only modestly respond to crises, but also work with governments and communities to minimize the impact of these natural disasters in the future.
