The overall objective of the DRF Analytics Project is to increase financial resilience of countries against natural disasters. Financial resilience entails that governments have thought already before a natural disaster occurs about how to fund response and recovery efforts, and have subsequently taken measures to secure such financing. There is a range of options for DRF, depending on the context in a country.The specific objective of this project is to improve the understanding and to increase capacity of governments to take informed decisions on DRF based on sound financial analysis. The project expects to catalyse the uptake of innovative risk identification, assessment and financing tools within the development policy frameworks and agenda of several middle-income and low-income countries.Activities
under Pillar 2 contribute to the development of a suite of “parent” DRF
Analytics decision making tools. Pillar 2 is based on lessons learned from
pilot country implementation under the previous pillar. Training materials and
user manuals of each of the tools are to be produced.
