Development professionals from around DC joined us on November 14 at World Bank HQ to learn about ways to get involved with the global mapping community!
URf Pacific will bring together policy-makers, financial risk managers, and development partners to strengthen regional collaboration on climate and disaster risk finance, to share lessons on communicating risk to technical and policy audiences, and to offer learning opportunities across five core themes that are integral to financial resilience.
