In 2014, the Government of Japan and the World Bank partnered to launch the "Japan-World Bank Program for Mainstreaming Disaster Risk Management in Developing Countries."

The Program, managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and implemented by the Tokyo Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Hub, aims to:

  1. Support developing countries in mainstreaming DRM in national development planning and investment programs through World Bank operations
  2. Connect Japanese and global expertise in DRM with developing countries and World Bank teams
