The objective of this grant is to assess
experiences and lessons, as well as develop knowledge products, to support the mainstreaming
of inclusive approaches and strategies across GFDRR activities, with a special
focus on gender, disability-responsive DRM, and citizen engagement. The ultimate
objective is to influence World Bank DRM operations to scale up impact.

This grant will build on previous GFDRR inclusive
DRM related work to identify and fill gaps other social resilience and
inclusion activities within the Facility are not covering; help GFDRR and WB DRM
