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 plurality
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.
Pillar 3 includes global knowledge management activities for users
of DRF analytics information, such as policymakers in governments of developing
countries or development agencies, and for technical DRF practitioners. Activities
include developing an online training course on DRF analytics information and producing
outreach material to introduce the tools developed under the project; and
holding at least four regional workshops on the “parent” tools developed under
Pillar 2.
