Who We Are
The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a global partnership that helps developing countries better understand and reduce their vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change.
What We Do
GFDRR is organized around these eight priority topics.
Publicly-funded infrastructure must be designed resilient. When transport, health care, drinking water, sanitation, telecommunications, and electricity are all resilient, basic services are maintained during disaster, and infrastructure users are not put at risk by sub-standard structures.

"Disaster risk management is evolving, and with it, the demand for new approaches and support in new sectors. GFDRR is well-positioned and prepared to handle the diversity and scale of growing demand, meeting it with innovative solutions and a growing portfolio of resources."
