Facing drought, Covid-19, and hurricane season, Saint Lucia bolsters its disaster risk financing plans
Due to its location, topography, and socioeconomic conditions, Madagascar is one of the most exposed and vulnerable countries in the world to climate change and extreme weather events, with cyclones, flooding, and drought posing the greatest risks. Madagascar and other Indian Ocean countries have recently been affected by Tropical Cyclone Belna in December 2019, which followed tropical cyclones Idai and Kenneth that also hit the same region earlier in 2019.
Recent years have shown the growing demand for support and tremendous drive by Sub-Saharan African countries to work on the Disaster Risk Financing (DRF) agenda. This was confirmed during a knowledge sharing event organized in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire on 20 November 2019 in the margins of the Understanding Risk (UR) West and Central Africa conference which focused on projects and activities implemented in the frame of the European Union (EU) funded Africa Disaster Risk Financing (ADRF) Initiative.
The activity report summarizes activities of Result Area 5, also known as the Africa Disaster Risk Financing (ADRF) Initiative, from July 2018 until June 2019. The report gives an overview of the achievements during this period. So far, the ADRF Initiative has yielded results in supporting governments by strengthening their capacity to design and implement risk financing policies, instruments, and strategies at regional, national and local levels.
