The Umbrella Program and the Standalone Trust Funds

In FY22, GFDRR transitioned into an umbrella trust fund structure. The umbrella started with one anchor Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) and two Associated Trust Funds (ATFs), which expanded to four in FY23. 

GFDRR’s third Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF III) is the anchor trust fund. The United States Agency for International Assistance (USAID’s) Single-Donor Trust Fund for Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Management in Developing Countries; the Multi-Donor Trust Fund for the City Resilience Program (CRP); the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific - European Union Disaster Risk Management (ACP-EU DRM) Program; and the EU- South Asia Capacity Building for Disaster Risk Management Program (EU-SAR DRM) are the four ATFs.

Together, these five trust funds work across GFDRR’s four priority areas and two cross-cutting priority areas, which have been delineated in the 2021-2025 GFDRR Strategy.

There are several other standalone trust funds managed by GFDRR that have not been included in the Umbrella Program:
