This report summarizes the activities and achievements under Result Area 5 of the Program "Building Disaster Resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa", from its commencement in August 2014 to June 30, 2016.
Result Area 5, also known as the Africa Disaster Risk Financing (ADRF), aims to support African countries in developing national risk financing tools and strategies that have the potential to significantly reduce disaster losses, speed recovery, and build resilience to natural hazards. Result Area 5 is not financed by the ACP-EU NDRR Program.
The report gives an overview of the achievements to date and identifies upcoming priorities and challenges. In its early phases, the initiative has already yielded results in supporting governments with efforts to strengthen capacity to design and implement risk financing strategies at regional, national and local levels.
