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 increase
capacity of governments to take informed decisions on DRF based on sound
financial analysis. The project expects to catalyze 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.

The objective of Pillar 1: Country Implementation is that governments in
countries supported by the project have access to improved tools and
well-communicated technical information to support informed DRF
decision-making. In addition, a financial disaster risk assessment will be
conducted to quantify the financial and fiscal impact of disasters and to
review the current financial protection strategy of the country against
disasters for programme governments.
