Who We Are
The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a global partnership that helps developing countries better understand and reduce their vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change.
What We Do
GFDRR is organized around these eight priority topics.
GFDRR Labs
GFDRR Labs uses cutting-edge science and technology to make high-quality risk information available faster and at lower costs, and develop new tools that allow decision-makers and communities to collect, share, and understand risk information.

Resilient Infrastructure
Publicly-funded infrastructure must be designed resilient. When transport, health care, drinking water, sanitation, telecommunications, and electricity are all resilient, basic services are maintained during disaster, and infrastructure users are not put at risk by sub-standard structures.

Resilient Cities
We support cities in strengthening their ability to better manage stresses and shocks from disaster and climate hazards.
Learn More
Hydromet Services and Early Warning Systems
We help countries plan and prepare for extreme weather by working with them to strengthen their hydromet monitoring, forecasting and early warning systems.
Learn More
Financial Protection
We support countries in their efforts to design and implement financial protection strategies and instruments which can help them manage the costs of disaster and climate shocks.
Learn More
Social Resilience
We work with countries to tackle the gender and social dimensions of disaster risk, while also mobilizing the expertise of citizens and communities for strengthening resilience.
Learn More
Resilience to Climate Change
We work with countries to strengthen their ability to plan, design and implement climate resilient policies and investments.
