Integrating disaster risk reduction into the fight against poverty: GFDRR annual report 2010

This report summarises GFDRR’s areas of major impacts and use of resources from its inception until fiscal year (FY) 2010, and indicates that coming years will be more promising. It aims not only to serve as the comprehensive overview of the impact of preceding GFDRR activities for FY 2010, but also as the benchmark for present and future role of GFDRR in global disaster risk management and climate change adaptation. It is intended to stimulate a reflection among Consultative Group members on the efficacy of investments and programmatic approaches undertaken under the various tracks of GFDRR in reducing disaster losses.

Examples of the extensive efforts developed by GFDRR to help countries most at risk to achieve sustainable development include: (i) the study on the Economics of Disaster Risk Reduction (EDRR); (ii) the "Safer homes, stronger Communities" report; (iii) the innovative risk financing tools; (iv) the piloting of the GFDRR labs or the Understanding Risk conference; and (v) the development of the Urban Risk Assessment for cities.
